mcberko (6441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap at Uber Tavern, pours an opaque dark reddish / orange brown with a big beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted malt and brown sugar. Flavour of toasted and caramel malts, toasted nuts and dry bread. Finishes on the dry bready notes. Pretty uninteresting but decent.

Nikiel (877) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle with Carla. Pours dark brown with a creamy off-white foam that disperses to nothing. Smells nicely sweet and bitter with hints of caramel, toffee and mild hops. Tastes lightly roasty with a nice hop kick at the end. Like an India ESB.

22 oz. bottle of the "Special Draft". Picked this bad boy up at the local QFC for $3.99. This beer is dark brown, nearly black, in appearance. It had quite the fluffy head, at first, but now itís thin and wispy. Thereís not really much to the aroma other than some yeast, banana, and subtle smoke. Itís kind of an odd combination, but it works. Wow, the beer has a very unique flavor. Iím seeing a drain pour in my near future. I get a smoke flavor, at first, and then it just falls into something rather nasty. This beer has a rotten vegetable and metallic flavor. Very astringent. Tastes like someone broke open a bunch of herbal capsules and put them into a beer. This isnít good. Fucking drain pour. The texture is decent. Nothing in this beer makes sense.

CampesinoTino (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bomber. Color is a shade of dark brown with a good inch of chocolate mocha foam. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, smoked malts and a little bit of floral hops in the background. Taste begins with a strong shot of light roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, roast malt and brown sugar. Also some citrus and herbal hops notes at the end. Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with average carbonation and a dry, smoky finish with some hops bitterness. Overall, an enjoyable ASA that tastes a bit like a strong Stout with a hops kick.

22 oz. from Chuckís. Great dark malty brew. Slight touches of porter. Smells like chai and chocolate. Finishes like an imperial stout. This beer is great!

Zymurgeist2 (1016) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Massive chocolate and malt aroma. Beautiful. Pours a hazy brown with garnet all around. Khaki head slowly ebbs. Medium-thin mouthfeel up front leads to a full more-rounded finish. Slight cola but otherwise a nice toffee, roasted and smooted taste. Chocolate blends with some coffee.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
A caramel woodiness starts with a faint dark chocolate note. Deep mahogany with creamy beige head. A complex sweet flavor, traces of brown sugar and leather. Medium body but delicate carbonation. Trace amounts of smoke make for an interesting and enjoyable beer.
