KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) medium brown fluffy head that receded slowly, down to a light film with a large collar and had excellent sheets of streaky lacing. The aroma was bold and powerful with a burnt chocolate malt, a light resin hop and a heavy leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla and dark fruit (berries). The taste was very malty with a nice chocolaty sweetness and a note of coffee from the onset with a mild bitterness settling in along with a hint of molasses and a somewhat strong smoky berry ending. The flavor lingered for a good long time with a wonderful chocolate espresso taste that was left hanging for a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few steps past medium in body with a smooth and creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall an extremely bold, robust and tasty brew that ended with a mild fruity sweetness that possessed a touch of smoke, which made this an exceptionally fantastic drinking experience...

maxwelldeux (3667) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a thick and very dark brown with a very thick tan head. Lots of bitter and roasted notes to the nose. Definitely bitter and biting in the taste - not for the uninitiated.

Bottle poured into a snifter: Aroma of pomegrante shines through nicely! Awesome aroma. Taste smokey to me, slightly sour. Different for me, but grew on me as I drank. Intresting beer.
