1 oz sample at Beer Revolution, courtesy of @bresnev. Pours a sinful black, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and citrus, grainy hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well. Whatever this is seceding from, its succeding..

Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.

Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Nice balance in this one. Moderate chocolate sweetness with the right amount of pine sting. Really drinkable.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I dont know that Id call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where Id categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

On draught at Hopworks. Deep black with light tan head. Aroma is citrus, dark malt, and roasted smokiness. Taste is dark chocolate, citrus, roasted dark malt. Really well balanced; not too bitter not too sweet. Finishes with a hoppy, toasted character.

Aroma is clove ,caramel, toasted malts, and slight toffee. Taste is rich malts, caramel, tart,clove and fig. Very well balanced. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

dresden (1355) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours deep black. Citrus aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Quite hoppy, but with a mocha malt body. I really like this one. Some grapefruit, some coffee. Works well here.

CheersMate (1337) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Bellevue. Nice dark brown, almost black, appearance. This beer has a thin, and yet, wispy head. A little roast is complimented by a nice orange citrus hop aroma. The aroma is quite pungent, and nice. Very roasted at first, but the roast is soon dominated by the hop flavor, which actually has a pine taste, instead of a citrus taste. The beer is rather dry, and the roast mixes well with the aforementioned hop flavor. This has a bit of a milky flavor, as well. This is pretty good, and has a nice lingering bitterness, which pleases me.
