Dark ruby color, small steady off-white head, some lace. Intensive nose: blackberry juice and sweetness. Active carbonation. Blackcurrant and bready malts: combination of berries, hops and sweet candies. Finish is hoppy. Very interesting and unique, good!

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Kind of a murky chestnut brown with a thin bubbly head. The aroma is very toasty and earthy, both from malt and hops. Toasty palate with earthy hops, a dull bitterness and unfortunately not much brightness. Gets chewy towards the finish, possibly with some alcohol. Just needed something for me to latch onto.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Very dark color, but there is lots of ruby on the edges. The head is multifinger beige. Aromas of resin and floral hop with roasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Taste is astringent hop with reasonably toasted malt. There is a lot of herb or floral aspect. Maybe even a little grassiness. Sort of puckers the mouth in the finish. Lots going on with this one. With time I can imagine there is a bit of sour. But maybe it’s just astringency.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
