very dark with a white head and an incredible floral hop aroma. Pretty hoppy taste but a little lacking in the malt finish. pretty good though

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours a dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is very hoppy and kinda over powers the dark roasted notes. Flavor isnít much different, has some sharp pine. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a decent tan head and toasty aroma. There is a well-balanced flavor featuring roasted malt and tasty hops. It reminds me of an English stong ale.

Johnsense (799) - - MAR 10, 2012
Black pour with a finger of head. Webs of lacing. Citrus aroma - hops, some coffee. Gave it a bit to warm and was surprised at how balanced this was - Hoppy bitterness with roasted malt, a bit of black coffee, under-ripe Grapefruit, Organic grains (think that smell when you step into an organic grocery store). Medium bodied, slightly lower carbonation. Resiny mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Pours reddish-brownish-black with a medium fluffy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet roasted malt and resiny hops. The finish is piney hops up front and leaves a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Roasted malt aroma - dark chocolate, espresso and piney hops. Medium bodied, roasted characteristics, medium hop finish. Finish is lingering bitter with a touch if lemon. This is a good beer, but Iíve had better stylistically, and a style Iím growing quite fond of.
