Outstanding!!! Has a great pour with virtually no foam. Aroma has various hints of chocolate and dried fruits. Smooth taste with a little bitter after taste, which is most enjoyable.

This is by far one of my favorite beers. I love the aroma of chocolate and roasted smells. The appearance is Black clear and frothy with the reddish pomegranate showing in the head. I would love to know how to clone this as I would have it all the time.

This beer tasted wood-fired. I was happy to try this beer, especially because I’m a fan of the Golden Ale. I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes stouts, porters, or dark beers in general.

It pours dark with minimal head. Definite roasted flavors with strong dark chocolate overtones. Much more carbonation on the palate than the minimal head would give an indication of. Slight pomegranate taste which is not easily noticeable over the chocolate and coffee overtones. It’s a delicious brew.

08 bottle thanks to jayg. Black pour with a short-lived, tan, 1 finger head. Chocolate, sweetened coffee, brown sugar and slight dark fruit aroma. Boozy, fruity chocolate flavor with a slight bitter coffee finish. Oily full body with lots of carbonation.

Bottle shared by CapFlu from Oakes. Black with brown edges thin cream head. Aroma is a very roasty pomegranate with milk chocolate faint hoppiness, caramel. Taste is a very rich chocolate with pomegranate coming through in the aftertaste with a light roastiness and smoke- light toffee. Pretty interesting good stuff.
