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!

From 2010 notes. Pours deep reddish/brown with a light brown head that goes to a nice ring. Smell is rich cocoa, deep dark malt, orange. Taste is Cocoa, light citrus, ash, dark fruit. I get cherry on the aftertaste then finishing dry. Medium body, fairly active carbonation...pretty creamy.

Beerenberger (1366) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Thanks to Ted from Avery for sharing at WhipIn. Aroma is dark fruit and cherries. Pours an opaque blackish brown with a none lasting off whitehead. The taste has a smooth sweet fruit quality. Raisins, cherries and dark fruit. Medium- full body with soft carbonation. Overall, this was a pleasure to drink. Would be a great after dinner sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is dark fruits and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of raisins, roasted malt and chocolate. The finish is sweet with a molasses and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall

Deep amber almost brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is sugary toasted malts and all the typical things I don't like haha. Not bad.

7/7/12. Shared at my going away tasting by czuber! Fruity and minty aroma with bits of caramel malt. Sweet caramel and oxidation in the flavor. Very glad to have it.

Bomber from IrishBoy. Pours very dark brown with a creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma is a bit of oxidation with a lot of treacle. Full bodied. Flavor has some oxidation, but there’s a lot of dark fruit, treacle and roast malt. It is finishing just off dry, and not too bitter. Still it’s tempting to say dry and bitter. The post-finish suggests cola. This ale has aged really well. Quite delicious.
