COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 14 wonderful years, we have been creating libations for ourselves in the hope that some others out there would share our eccentric palates and support us. Many thanks to all of you who do! Here is yet another quirky brew: a very dark and different, dry-hopped ale. Style? hard to say, you decide. Just expect massive molasses maltiness, limitless fruits on the nose and an imposing floral & zesty dry-hop finish. Peace to all and follow your dreams!
1.090 OG, 60 IBUs.

Pours dark, dark brown and thick and chewy and hazy and very, very inviting. The head is frothy but restrained, with some lacing as it fades. Smells like tea and chocolate and caramel, begging you to take a sip. Tastes immediately sweet in a rush of toffee and sweet tea, yet then grows mildly fruity and bitter. The citric hops show up on the moderately bitter, clingy finish, providing a nice balance to the unending malt sweetness. Gets a little much as it warms, but still a nice bottle. (5/1/09)

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate brown color with a little bit of a red hue to it. Off white head with a few streaks of lace. Nose brings forward a cacophony of different scents, including raisins, dark fruit, booze, roasted malt, and a bit of dark rum. Taste pulls everything together quite well, accentuating the dark fruits and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Drinks really well and glad to try it when I did a few months back.

I would have to answer the style question by saying that in the last few years this type of ale has come to most beer drinkers attention by stones sublimely self rightuous. This is a black ipa, plain and simple, great roasted malt aroma and flavor on the front of the tongue, and spicy and flowery hops at the back of the throat. Its a wonderful interpretation of a black ipa and an overall style that is going to become very popular in the coming years.

BREWMUSKCLES (2154) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
nice fruit cocktail in hop brew. sweetish with a bit of rusty oil can in there the beer is zesty and bright though still aged well and refined. hops come through well enough with a pine cone and flower character that i am fond of. quirky? yes! and good.

Draught at Avery. Dark brown almost black with medium tan head. Aroma is spicy sweet with hints of molasses and deep caramel malt, nice pungent hop profile. Taste has strong hop presence with rich malty dried fruit at backend. Medium sweetness at start. Hints of chocolate. Medium bodied but hearty. Awesome brew.

22 oz. bottle from fidelis83- thanks again, Jeremiah! Pours a cloudy dark brown with a finger-thick off-white head with nice retention. Notes of grass, earthy hops, caramel malts, molasses, citrus and other fruits, raisins, nuts, and alcohol. Medium-bodied, with active carbonation and a malty, spicy mouthfeel. The hops are pretty decent for a beer that’s been sitting for a few years. Complex and pretty nice.
