3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 12 oz can from Martin G., thanks man! Canned on January 2 2013, so relatively fresh (can says to drink this fresh). Pours deep brown with a small, offwhite head that receeds into nothingness. Aroma is chocolate, oats and a little grass. Taste is a little sweet but nothing distracting, with not much bittering hops to speak of. Mouthfeel is nice (albeit a little watery), so smooth. There are a few roasted flavors here and they are paired with the oats again. Overall a nice brown ale, nothing to write home about though.

Pours a medium to dark dull brown with just a little room for light to seep through it and a finger of eggshell foam. Aromas are subtle with heavy malt character, touch of fig chocolate and some roasted leather notes as well. The palate is lighter than expected with a nice touch of carbonation to liven up the flavors that were subtle in the nose. Great oat grain, bitter chocolate and nutty cola notes as well. Not sure how it pairs with cigars but it goes great with a big spliff of Blueberry Haze.

Bottle. Brown with an enormous loose beige head. Aroma of chocolate, earth, leaves. Highly carbonated mouthfeel, better after it sat awhile. As much coffee as chocolate in the taste, some roast, herbal notes, finishes moderately bitter with tobacco and some astringency. Chocolate is a bit powdery. Didn’t travel, I suppose.

Muy buena cerveza. Me ha sorprendido muchísimo su potente y complejo sabor para tener sólamente 5,5% de alcohol. Su densa espuma tiene un sabor ligeramente ahumado. El cuerpo a grano de café tostado, chocolates negros, especias para carnes. Mucha espuma. Gran cuerpo perfectamente equilibrado con el gas y el sabor. No fumo, pero tal y como recomienda en su etiqueta apetece darle una calada a un buen habano.

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue with a white head and fair lacing. A sweet aroma of caramelized sugar, oats, and bready malt. Flavor is expectedly on the sweet side with some caremalized brown sugar, molasses, nuttiness, and the slightest touch of roastiness.

Old rating from 2010 - Appears fairly dark reddish/brown with a smallish tan head that goes to a wisp. Smell is brown sugar, sweet fruit, fairly mellow on the nose. Taste follows nose with dry slight bitterness on the aftertaste. A bit more than light in body with nice carbonation...smooth. A decent brew.
