Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Cloudy med brown. Lots of woody hops, big chinooky-type stuff (I’m usually wrong on my hops), toasty malts. Very toasty, good woody cascade character.

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, light roasted malt and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour is rich, with fruity, citrusy hops, moderate roasted malt character, and a bit of caramel malt. Great balance between the hops and malt, with a moderate sweetness. Great one here.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep ruby, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing.   Pith and pine on the nose.   Soft sweetness, a little citrus peel.   On the tongue its the same, pine, astringent pith, citrus peel, hoppy.   Wished it were a bit sweeter.   Has a moderate amount of sweetness, but could use a touch more to balance the astringent pith and citrus peel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels a bit chewy, but quickly fades.   Lingering pith and citrus peel.   Pretty good, a bit above average.

22. Pours nearly opaque black with a creamy tan head that settles and then sticks around. Fresh piney nose with mild roasty black ipa undertones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty mid palate with caramel and pine notes and a long clean piney finish. Nice strong red.

Amped up red/pale ale...juicier hops and more earthy/spicy/woodsy notes as well. Pretty nice brew. Not sure if they bottle this...

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of biscuit and red malt in it, as well as a hint of pine. The flavor is more of the same. The grass and pine notes meld well with the strong malt backbone. There is also a decent amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Piney and floral hops on the nose, rather pungent hoppiness really. Toasted malts, a little sweetness, and some vodka. Pours darker auburn/amber. Thin head and lace. The flavor consists of pine and floral hops, toasted malts, a little roast, a little sweetness, and vodka. After the vodka comes an assertive and rather agressive hop bitterness. Lingering hops and a little booze. Good.

Dark brown with a hint of red. Clear with a thin head. Big hops and malt flavors and aroma. I do get some piney and light citrus flavors. This was a big tasty black beer. Thanks Tim for the taste.
