Pours dark reddish brown, off white creamy head. Nice sweet roasted aroma-malty finishes with a bit of a bitterness. Worth a try if you like these darker Ales. You might be "rigged" if you swill enough of this!

From bottle a clear dark brown with a reddish tinge. A cereal chocolatey taste a thinly oily feel. Great beer that comes off darker than it is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with a red tint. Lasting white head. Dark, rich malty and toffee aroma. The aroma is complex. The flavor has complex toffee malt character and chocolate. Its stronger, but still weak by American standards and I like that.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma of this beer is fairly light with a fusion of caramel malts, banana, and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance is brown with a medium off-white head. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, and the palate combines an average carbonation, long astringent finish, medium body, slick texture. Overall, this beer isnít too amazing, but it is still an enjoyable and drinkable brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just short of a stout in color and bitterness, could probably fool a novice. Deep dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, wood, smoke. Taste is chocolate , oak barrel, espresso. Finish is dry and abrupt with some lingering bitterness. If youíre a fan of stout, give this one a try.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear mahogany, small off white head with some moderate lacing. Lovely aroma of roasted malts and nuts with hints of some dark fruits. Taste is also of roasted malts but with bits of smokiness, coffee, nuts, dark fruit and a little bit of chocolate. Brilliant ale.
