Pour out of 22 oz bottle at Dan’s is dark brownish almost black with thin tan head, aroma brings notes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, some roasted caramel, earthy tones, bitter nuttiness, touch of mineral notes. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, biscuit, roasted sugar notes, touch of dark fruit with some raisins, plums, hints of chocolate, finishes fairly smooth and slightly sweet.

On tap at The Taphouse, pours dark amber with a beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Flavour of vanilla, caramel malts, and bitter (too much so) finish. Decent.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Tap at Fremont. Nose is toasted and roasted grains, earth, chocolate, light dark malty sweetness, and spicy floral hops. Dark auburn, thin to no head. Chocolate malts, roasted and toasted husky grains, earthy bitterness, peppery and floral hops in finish. A little thinner than other winter warmers, but I like that it could almost be sessionable. Solid beer.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this beer and for 5000 for sending me another bottle of it. The beer pours a dark brown color with red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and chocolate with some nice cream notes mixed in as well. The flavor is similar. The beer is very chocolatey tasting and there is also a nice amount of roasted malt. There is also a little bit of mint in the flavor, which goes well with the other flavors. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Collins Pub, I think. Black and stout looking. Tan scattered lace. Chocolate malts and minty hops blend in the aromas. Silky palate. And flavors also no nonsense chocolate malt and unpretentious.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Guest tap at Pike. I wrote down Abominator so hopefully the right one. Dark beer with light head and good lacing. Strong dusty strong malt aroma. Creamy slick body and very nice light chocolate and coffee.
