Dark ale, strong falvor, but smooth to drink. Alcohol is high, but not overpowering. Would definitely get again, great value for such a strong beer.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ home via Secret Krampus courtesy toss from Andy. Mahogany pour with a short lived khaki head. This smells like Red Man chewing tobacco. Smoke, caramel, band aids, and candied orange peel. W@? Tastes of tobacco, beef jerky, smoke, and plastic. This is gross. According to vacax: "the lake may be superior, but this beer is a fucking piece of shit."

Black which turns into a dark crimson when held up to a light. Aroma of licorice, caramel, toffee, oak, vanilla and chocolate. Rather smoky upfront with licorice, chocolate, oak, hops, chocolate and roasted barley; Very chocolatey/roasty finish. Light weight body and carbonation. Very smooth tasting!

Bottle from Guerde - thanks man! Pours very dark brown/amber with a creamy off-beige head. Aroma seems woody. And smoky. Full bodied, almost. Flavor is woody, smoky, lightly brown sugar. It’s near dry. It finishes smoky and a bit bitter. A little chocolate after a long time.

Schaeppi (3) - - JAN 5, 2013 does not count
Pours dark and smooth into snifter with perfect amount of head. Main aroma is scent of dark chocolate with faint dark berry. Tastes creamy to the mouth, smooth immediate aftertaste, with delayed mild notes of chocolate and coffee. Great beer stand alone and great with a burger or hearty winter meal.

Ericular (555) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Pours dark brown with pillowy head that lasts forever with great lacing. Sweet, dark fruity aroma, with some caramel and bourbon. Taste is equally sweet with more caramel, toffee, and a little roasted taste with slight booze at the end. Palate is thick, smooth, creamy. Alcohol is very well hidden. Almost dangerously drinkable, as it is subtle and not overly complex.
