iamqueensblvd (247) - , Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Black pour with a tight and present off white head. slight funky oatmeal and zinc or some metallic funk on the head. taste was of a slight toastyness and the mouth feel and body were pathetically watery. No a good representation of the style whatsoever.

This was pretty decent. Poured a nice dark color with oat and malt nose. Really smooth with a bit of bubbles. The flavor was mostly malt, oat, a bit of chocolate.

saltyseadog (33) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2016
12oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Aromas of light roast coffee, salted cured meat, grill smoke, soy sauce and a bit of pear and apricot. Pours a bloody red to oily black color with less than a finger of pristine ivory head that burns off in just a couple of minutes, with very little effervescence on the glass. Flavor is light roast coffee and semisweet chocolate up front followed by salty seawater and light fruit juice. Finish is long and lightly sweet but not cloying. Thin body for a beer of this color and classification. Really has the color and flavor profile I would consider more in line with Irish Red beer. Light carbonation and makes the mouth water generously after each sip. An interesting, unusual, unpretentious and quality brew, as all Big Skyís stuff seems to be. The salty, fruity qualities are one of a kind. Iím not sure Iím head over heels in love with the approach, but itís a nice alternative to the roasty and astringent status quo. Having a great time with it. Well done.

12 oz single bottle from Wilburís Total Beverage. Almost black in appearance with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, light coffee and light chocolate. Similar flavor, adding a hint of molasses. Light to medium body, a little thin on the palate. OK.

12oz brown bottle. The colour is dark brown with dark red highlighting. the head has a tight bead and sits low in the glass. Nose has chocolate, roast, coffee and porridge. Taste - chocolate, light roast and lots of oat. Dry finish with not much going on. Very creamy and excellent mouthfeel.

theisti (3806) - Kansas, USA - JAN 9, 2015
12 oz bottle, part of the World Market winter 9 bottle mix pack, courtesy of my in-laws. Bottle marked 224144 121014. It appears this is best before December 10, 2014. The pour is a darker brown with a smaller tan head that lasts. The aroma is oatmeal, soft nut, sweet malt and some faint roast. The taste is the oatmeal, nut sweet malt and roast of the nose with added pine hop present. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with soft carbonation and the roast pine mineral finish. Solid.
