Appearance: Vert dark brown color. You can see light through it but it may be the darkest brown beer I have seen. Smell: Sweet somewhat fruity smell. Taste: Very smooth and drinkable. Iím imprerssed, a received a mixed 12 pack as a gift. Mouthfeel: A little on the heavy side, but it is very drinkable. Overall: I would buy this agian, good during the winter months up north. This was 2nd beer I tried in mixed 12 pack, the best so far and my guess the best in the pack.

Bulk_Carrier (3018) - Mt Reclusion, Vermont, USA - JUL 8, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light messy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell started off with rich sweet milk chocolate and a lingering bitter dark chocolate to balance. Light dark fruits mesh in and around the chocolate flavors. The taste was moderately sweet combining the chocolate with the dark fruits nicely. A light lingering sweet fruity to chocolate aftertaste leads into a sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed pretty subdued yet still good and lead to a semi-smooth almost creamy feel. Overall, tastes and smells great on a cool Summerís evening, not a crushable beer but looking at it for what it is and wants to be it works. Iíd have again.
