brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 30, 2010
A: The pour is dark brown in color, but nearing black, with a short lived tan head. S: The roast is strong on this one. The pomegranate is just as powerful though and provides its trademark sweet/tart notes. I also seem to get a bit of bleach, unfortunately. T: The combination of intense roast along with sweet and tart fruits seems a bit strange to me. The acidity and sourness that I’m getting could be from the pomegranate, but could also be from the roasted malts. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. Nothing really special either way. D: This beer sounded like it could be very interesting, and I suppose it was interesting, it just wasn’t exactly my thing. I just don’t think the roastiness worked all that well with a fruit like pomegranate.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2008
It’s pretty black. Aroma is chocolatey, lightly fruity, lightly coffeeish. Juicy fruit - too vague to specifically pinpoint as pomegranate - overtop a richly roasty, chocolatey, Bustelo-ish body. Lots of roast bitterness bordering on astringency. The mouthfeel is a bit odd - fairly thin but the malts themselves taste syrupy. Decent effort - good to see Gordash going in a nice assertive direction.

Bottle, 8%. Roasted aroma, some coffee, roast barley notes. Black colour, small light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, has lots of fresh coffee, with sugar almost. Some barley bitterness, get a bit sour in the finish. Also some tannin bitterness, probably from the pomegranate.
