Draft. Pours dark mahogany with a smallish tan head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt, some nuttiness, some dark fruit, a hint of tartness. Tasty and very drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden. Would definitely drink again.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small but thick head. The aroma is toasted malt with little hops. The flavor and aftertaste is slightly sour and thin. Ok overall

jsquire (3468) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Almost cola colored beer with a sticky, rocky beige beer. Malty sweet nose with rome roasted grains. Sweet beer with white sugar and some caramel. A little tea and some toasted bread and roasted malt notes.

MacBoost (1280) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a very deep red, almost brown. Head is non-existent. Notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and perhaps a little rum in the nose. I’m tasting a little roast that I did not pick up on in the nose. Also, this beer is not as sweet as I thought it was going to be. Ample carbonation. Actually, I’m now getting a lot of roast as it warms. This is much better than I thought it was going to be.

Draught from Dinosaur BBQ (Syracuse NY). Pours a dark brown color with minimal head. Aromas of caramel, malt and yeast. Taste of mild hops with a nutty aftertaste. A solid brew.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2011
Draught, 7%. Weak roasted aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is roasted with some alcohol sourness. Not so malty or sweet. Vinous finish.

drowland (6049) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
9/21/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour, some ruby under the light, with a small tan head that fades fast and doesn’t lace at all. Big fruity aroma with dark fruits, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart fruits, roast, and earthiness. Not bad!

Nice dark brown pour under a thin tan head; medium carbonation, good mellow flavor, sweet but not too sticky. A nice surprise!
