3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great black ale. Pours a muddy brown-black with a thick tan head. Smells like chocolate covered fruit, mainly cherries. Taste is he same upfront, lots of chocolate covered fruit, very creamy, some hops in the end, and an ice cream aftertaste, almost like a Guinness float. Love the finish. Very nice! Had on tap it East Side Club Tavern in Olympia, Washington. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acquired from hayduke. Thanks Ron! It poured a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma was of roasted malt and burnt molasses. The taste was of sweet maltiness with caramel, toffee, vanilla and hints of raisins and some figs. Very well done.

Poured brown black with a beige head. Aroma of sweet citrus piney hops. The taset is classic black IPA fullness of flavor of roasty pine. Better than average. Would easily grab another bottle if I had one.
