On tap. A: Opaque root beer brown according to my wife. (black. It’s black.) with a thin, creme colored head. N: Hops display themselves through spruce, biscuit, cocoa, coffee, touch of black raspberries even. Mango and pineapple. Marshmallow. T: Bittersweet in equal proportions. M: Medium body bordering on thick. Lighter level if carbonation. O: A coniferous beast with a spritzing of sweets. Maybe too sweet, actually.

Draft to pint glass Aroma of lemon, hops and caramel. Deep deep red with a nice long lasting thin creamy tan head. Taste is sweet and bitter with a nice toasted malt.

Pours a very dark brown with some sediment on the bottom possibly hops, big light brown head that stays and laces the glass really nicely. Aromas of roasted malt, pine, grassy. Flavours of chocolate/roasted malts, pine to grapefruit to grassy transition with just the right amount of medium bitterness that doesn’t over stay its welcome.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
Pours very dark brown with nice off-white head. Mid range hoppy aroma. Roasty middle with dry finish. OK - a ways to go before its the Stone Self-Righteous.

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
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, it’s succeding..

Dark soda looking pour from bottle with a thin head. Aroma is rye and earthy. Taste is slightly bitter, with notes of herbs, nuts and hay. Complex and interesting.

dresden (1070) - 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.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Originally reviewed: 3/2/10. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a limitless black. No light gets through. A gorgeous tan head caps it off like the top of a milkshake. Excellent retention; leaves lots of sticky lace and webbing. This is a really pretty beer. Big powerful pine resin scents burst out to the nose. Citrus zest and some grass in there as well. Great smooth and creamy body. This one sits a little heavy. Very bitter at the onset with lots of hop presence. Sharp burnt toast on the backend. A little charring. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great beer!

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a lovely deep molasses black with a brief brown head. Earthy light hop aroma. Slightly sweet brown ale with a very earthy taste, lightly biting hop bitterness. Good carb, thinnish body. Quaffable, but slightly odd earthy taste.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Liqour Store in Calgary, AB on 05/25/2011. Colour: Extremely dark red with hints of brown and low white head. Nose: Maple laced coffee, chai spice, yeast. Hops are abundant and full of fresh zest. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Tea leaves, and lots of them. Earl Grey? Some buttered toast pops its head in to say hi. Touch of soap. Hops are consistent. End trails off characterwise and leaves solid bitterness.
