Opaque very dark brown beer. Aged malt nose and a little chocolate. Surprisingly fresh palate, a little bit soft. Minerally malt. Chocolate that isn’t bitter or sweet. Biscuity malt. A little hop left. Smooth and still very drinkable. Wish I had caught this one in it’s hey day. Still good although the hops have clearly faded.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006
Quite dark brown in colour. Big, rich aroma with molasses and buckwheat honey showing through. Thick, chewy, molassesy, lightly raisiny character. Sweet, a bit soft, and not showing any alcohol. A bit unfocused, as can be expected with so many ingredients, but a tasty drop nonetheless.

bhensonb (11368) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Huge amount of carbonation in the pour - much like a widget can. Aroma of flowery hop and piney hop. Dark brown color with ruby transparencies. A tan head that lingers long and laces a bit. Starts with sweet pine, followed by coffee, chocolate and light toasted malt, followed by a warm alcohol burn on the tongue edges, followed by a light persisting sweetish toastiness accompanied by a nice, but refined hop bitterness. This is truly magnificent - except the alcohol burns the esophagus, but no pain no gain.

jcwattsrugger (11173) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2006
22oz bottle-pours a big creamy light brown head that initially appears Guiness-like that laces and black in color with red tints. Aroma is sweet medium malt. Taste is alcohol, dark fruit, sweet medium malt. Later some chocolate/licorice notes appear. Comes across as a cross between I2PA and Barleywine. OK carbonation.

Bottle. Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt,chocolate and bread aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.
