harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Black dark ruby colour lasting tan head. Some maltiness a little oxidised. OK dark beer with a bit too much oxidised bovril. Not that keen on this to be honest. Not much hop, not much condition. Not a great dark beer.

Idiosynkrasie (5539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, dark brown colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Nuttily and minimally chocolately, malty aroma, a touch of wet straw. Taste is dry, nuttily dark malty, tinny, a cautious root beer touch, some bitterness. Yes, slightly obscure.

ordybill (936) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Has an aroma of malt and cocoa, not to bad. Appearance- This beer pours a reddish-brown with a large off-white head. Taste- Has a sweet caramel malt flavor, a tad to sweet for me Palate- A medium bodied and moderately carbonated Overall- First beer from this brewer, pretty good. I will definitely try other offerings from Cucapa.

Couleur brune foncer au col qui se dissipe rapidement. En bouche un peu de cereales griller et de caramel... Ordinaire...

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Medium amber-brown, quite caramelly on the nose. Taste is similar with a funny phenolic note. Sweet and I’m not sure I’d take this over Indio.

Pours a clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet malt aromas with some nuttiness to it. Lots of sweet caramel malts in the mouth. There is also a touch of roasted malts and toffee flavors. Overall pretty light body with an ABV of 4.8 %. Tasty malty dark beer!
