2008 bottle at Oldsmar Tap House. Nice dark chocolate taste at first. Leaves a pomegranate after taste. Not sure exactly how to describe the smell. It was quite different but quite pleasant.

12oz (2008) - Black, tan creamy head. Roasty milk chocolate and coffee cream aromas warm to lighter notes of sweet caramel berry cake. Roasted choco-pomegranate and coffee tones balance on a lightly sweetened whiskey-like note. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, soft sweet roasty finish. Unique and well executed...

The beer poured black with a two fingered head. The aroma was fruity and vinous like a Belgian, the flavor was sweet with caramel, fruit and a little smokiness. The palate was smooth with a light carbonation. Overall a lot like a Belgian with good sweetness, not quite what you would expect from this beer.

Loved this beer. Had if from a bottle and at the Alabama brewfest thing in Huntsville. I thought it had a bit of that sweet sour thing going on. Complex and interesting. Very good!

Poured from a 12oz bottle a pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is very pleasing of milk chocolate, raspberry truffles, and pomegrant. Flavor is amazing or rich chocolate that is complemented by the slight tartness from the pomegrant. Different from any other beer I have had....absolutely delicious!!!

Bottle says 2008 on it, consumed May 2010. Received in trade from KarrHeel03, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid black color with just the faintest of garnet highlights when held to the light. Tightly bubbled khaki head recedes slowly into the abyss. Smells of sweet perfume and chocolate and tart dark fruits, a little smoke and a hint of wet dog. Really a lot going on here. Taste is is kind of what I expected based on the aroma. Starts off with some tart fruits. I imagine pomegranate, raisins, plums, tart cherries dipped in chocolate. This melts into a bit of roasted grains, and leaves a roasted coffee chocolate finish. Medium to thick body, medium level of carbonation, creamy syrupy mouthfeel. This one is definitely different, but I think it works pretty well. The darker roasts seem homogenized perfectly with dark fruits. I wonder what this is like fresh.

Via trade with Dchmela. The aroma is like pomegranates covered in dark chocolate, roasty, fruity, nice. The appearance is deep black, tan head. The flavor is pomegranate, dark ripe fruit, dark chocolate. Medium to medium/thick in body. The finish is piney and citrus hops. Very little Belgian yeast signature. Very nice. Thanks, Dave.

Deep malty richness with dark fruity subtle notes. This is a sipper. Thick black with huge cocoa head, truly beautiful in the glass. Booze in the nose. Very enjoyable.

Thanks to Bob Gordash, the brewer, for sharing this up at Redlight. This one poured a deep black color with a thin tan colored head that elft spotty lacing around the glass. The aroma is very interesting on this one with a lot of chocolate and a touch of roasted malts on the nose. Another whiff of the beer brings out some belgian yeast characters and a hint of the pomegranate. The flavor follows suit with the dark and milk chocolate flavors rushing forward with a small amount of roastiness and then promptly followed by fresh pomegranate. The pomegranate and chocolate came together beautifully and with great balance between the two. The mouthfeel was medium bodied that was almost creamy with some vinous quality to it. The finish was chocolate covered pomegranate with a touch of hops in there. This was really nicely done, and I am glad I got to try this. I can’t wait until he bottles this in April.

draft @ redlight redlight. Its officially in, and on draft! Chocolatey malts and dark fruits come off the nose, blueberries, black raspberries, roasty aromas. Pours dark dark brown, black, with purplish reddish tints on the outside when held to the light, with a thin tan head. Good chocolate malt flavors, roasted malts, dark fruit, pomegranate, a lot of hop flavor coming through too, seems pretty hoppy, with a carmalelly dry finish. Very good!
