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.

Originally reviewed: 5/31/09. This beer pours a jet black with a small thin tan head on top. No retention whatsoever, and no lacing either. Weak. Smells of cocoa, currants, figs, grapes, and booze. Interesting. Mouthfeel is decent. Some mild carbonation on the tongue. I thought itíd be a bit more as a strong ale. Flavor is interesting to say the least. Right away I taste copious amounts of black licorice. If this is the "black" in "Mack in Black" Iíd be severely disappointed. Not a fan of the licorice flavor. Molasses, and a faint nuttiness in there as well. Finishes roasty. This is an interesting beer. Different, and it threw me for a loop on all counts. I donít know what I was expecting, but this was and wasnít it at the same time. Try it if you must, you may be surprised.

12 ounce bottle, pours a black color with aromas of roasted malt, coffee, dark dried fruit, nuts and some sweetness. Flvoar is the same, mostly roasted coffee throughout, other flavors are there, you just have to work for it.

heavy sepia, cream ring with lightly oily top. Nose is dusty chocolate, but of oat and plum. Flavor is more chocolate, anise and cherry lightly offsetting, but pleasant.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy beige head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, earthy hops, figs and other dark fruits, and light vanilla. Flavor is malt dominate with faint supporting hops and dark fruit esters; dry, chocolate finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

355mL thanks to maniac. Clear deep mahogany with tan head. Weak retention. Nose is black olive and marmite with salty black patent black. Like a foreign stout. Taste is carboardy and salty with odd paper and tannins. Sticky sugar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
