UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Dark brown/ruby hue, medium tan head, strong malty nose with noticeable alcohol, fine firm bittersweet flavor with solid malt backbone and some fruit notes, very well balanced. I’ve heard stories of how good this beer is and was glad to finally try it. One of the very best beers I’ve ever received from a beer-by-mail/UPS club. Tasted on February 26, 2013.

SlovakSniper (3360) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
En fût. Un verre presque glacé qui me semble être brun et rouge. Un petit anneau de mousse qui flotte sans conviction. Un nez tempéré qui donne des parfums de chocolat, de raisins, d’épices, de caramel et de noix. Une bouche simple, caramélisée et fruitée avec une touche légèrement mentholée. Un corps plutôt mince et un pétillement qui me semble être forcé. Une texture qui n’est pas aqueuse. Une finale surprenante avec des houblons vigoureux et épicés.

Dark red-brown with small tan head. Aroma toasty malt, chocolate. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Flavor nutty roasted malts, cocoa, a nice grassy hop background, finishes fairly dry. Good flavors and nice balance.

fiammanghilla (647) - Genova, ITALY - SEP 2, 2013
Bottiglia 335ml @ irish pub. Ambrata molto scura praticamente priva di schiuma. Molto malto, fruttata e dolciastra. Il finale è invece più amaro e piuttosto lungo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Bottle. Dark ruddy brown thin head. Malty but a bit too bitter for my taste. Some bready and caramel notes. Ok but not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Garnet color with huge head and decent foamy retention. Nose of caramel, toffee and light chocolate notes. Flavor is toasted grain, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light dark fruit, mild hop bitterness on the finish with only a hint of alcohol. Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Very nice brew.
