Draft. Pours brown/black with not much head. Aroma is burned sugar, straw, pecans. Taste is sweet and malty with an astringent, pine balance. Never leans too far one way or the other. Good balance here.

Tap at red cow. Bumped pint. Dark plum with thick off white head. Nice clean smell with balance of hop malt and sweet. Chocolate slightly bitter flavor. Full bodied and good finish. Roasted feel and really nice texture. Solid.

reebtogi (4190) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
355ml bottle pours almost black in color with a generous light beige head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains and chocolate with some tropical fruits and hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste is a roasted grain and grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation which leaves a little tickle on the palate.

"Slightly older bottle... solid brew. Main players are orange peel and tootsie roll like chocolate with some roasted dark malts and a decent hop bitterness. Pretty good, probably a little better fresher."

kevinator (934) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Good for the style. Nice bitter aroma with a dark malt essence. Pours a dark shade with a good sized head. Medium to light palate with high carbonation. Bitterness with roasted malt up front. Good just not that unique anymore.

closey22 (896) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Black with rimming tan head; aroma mild hoppy with subtle herbal notes; Flava is rich yet dry roasted malt and notes of hops; feels medium with slight fizz; finishes dry and subtly bitter

islay (1125) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-16-14. Scents of brown sugar, dark chocolate brownie, molasses, and a touch of paint, but not in a particularly bad way. Yeasty (clean, chlorine-like), musty aroma. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a very large amount of thick, uneven, long-lasting, taupe head. Produces good, thick lacing. Dry, piney flavor. English yeast character to the taste, like an English brown ale or a porter. Roasted malt flavors and a touch of smoke. The flavor reminds me of an overcooked savory pastry. Medium body. Lively enough and soft in the palate. Not bad but not outstanding palate effects. Solid and enjoyable beer overall.

czar (4378) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
pours unclear very dark brown with a large creamy and almost creamy light beige head, good retention and lacing - just a bit dirty but lots of qualities, appearance-wise. piney, citrusy, tropical chocolate beans, candied mangoes and pineapple in a sweet chocolate bar, so yah some sweetness - molasses, some ashes, woodsy astringency, booze and tingling pepper. average carbonation, light to medium body - oily and a tad heavy for style and abv; bold peppery-earthy-piney finish. dense and slightly sugary bipa - very tropicaly aromatic with a nice roasted profile though. much enjoyed!
