bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle from Josh. Pours really dark brown with a foamy 3-finger dark tan head. Aromas of creamy burnt malt. Medium body with creamy foamy carbonation. Flavor is berry, smooth burnt malt and a touch of something hoppy/spicey. Overall this is a very good flavor. I think the pomegranite is distinguishable after some time. A bit thin for an IS, but it is really very tasty.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted grain and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting complex beer.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, 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.

Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness.

On tap in Plantation, FL. This is nice. Very nice actually. No real hint of the pomegranate, just a nice chocolate and coffee scented beer with some of the same flavors on the palate. Pours very dark with a very small head. Good amount of hops. Well done.
