3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very deep red-amber with a thick light tan head. Aroma is nice chocolatey malts with some faint molasses and maybe a liitle dried fig. Taste is malt heaven with chocolate malts, molasses, and a creamy chocolate finish - there’s a tinge of hoppy bitterness in the finish, as well. Good after work beer.

Malt, fruit, and a little grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet and nutty. Some smoke and hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing great, but nothing bad either.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Purchased as Harpoon Dark: Aroma is malty with hints of dark fruit. Pours a dark brown with a none lasting off-white and no lacing. The taste is malt up front, hints of dark fruit in the middle, and a hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a pleasant beer, nothing outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a dark black with a tan head and lacing. It has a medium aroma of sweet, dark, and toasty malts. The flavor is sweet and dark malts up front leading to a balanced semisweet middle and aftertaste over a light-medium mouthfeel.

12oz bottle - pours ruby brown with beige head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel and roasted malts. Flavor adds light coffee and grassy hops. Wow, better than I expected. Taste is well balanced and bittersweet. Refreshing not so light. Solid. It drinks itself.
