Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2014
Clear, black, but hard to see through. Khaki, short, tight head. Muted pencil shaving aroma. Malty, slightly roasty, sunflower seed flavors. Good mouth, satisfying balance. I could drink a mess of this. Sweetish, smooth, with a good bit of roastiness. Proof on tap, downstairs with PorterPounder.

Have wanted to try this one for a while. Black pour, thin tan head, little lacing. Nose is biscuit, roasted grains, slight hop presence. Taste is biscuit, roasted grains, some watered down coffee. Thin to medium mouthfeel.

Huhzubendah (2262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice tasting beer. Light and simple. Easy drinking. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Well balanced. This is a nice brew that I wouldn’t mind drinking again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-04-2012

GABF, 2012. Clearly recognizable lager yeast. Rich palate with roasted malt, very full flavored. Grain finish. A very good session beer.

On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a clear brown color with a medium tan head. A big nose of sweet smoke and malts. A easygoing flavor with light metal and smoke, some toast and candies. Good. Clean.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On draught at Freshcraft during the Cigar City Reception. Black pour with some brown around the edges and a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Aroma of toasted malt, pine and hops. Light-bodied with a sweet roasted malt and resiny hops flavor. Notes of coffee and chocolate as well. The finish is roasty with an herbal hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours a translucent brownish-black on tap with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and coffee. Taste follows suit, but not offensive, well balanced. Good stuff, and a unique style.
