From the 650 ml. bottle marked C40114-7. Black as night pour with a huge beige head that lingers softly on top and leaves lacing with each sip. Aroma of roasted malts, hops, and maybe a touch of black licorice. The body is medium and smooth. The taste has a more forward hop character but I still pick up the dark malts and licorice like the aroma. This is nice.

From a bottle. Pours medium/dark brown with a frothy tan head. Tastes like coffee and barley, nutty, smooth. Creamy bitterness. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like creaminess, bitterness, and coffee.

Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Chocolate, pine hop nose, with some cocoa notes. Dark translucent brown. Dark peaty chocolate, heavy tea and more chocolate, some salty tinges, and good final bitterness. Medium body. Not shocking to the palate, but moderate to full flavors all around. Exceptional.

nakedwhendrunk (2135) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Received in trade. Consumed Feb 6. Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a dark brown close to black colored body with a decent two fingered white to off-white close to tan head that lasts for a good minute and a half. One ring of foam does appear but ends up sliding down into the beer. The smell has a nice earthy and smoky and roasted bitterness in the front through the coffee, however, there’s a nice pungent aroma of the citrus hops trying to come through, decent malty background. The taste is mainly bitter through the hops and the coffee reacting and overtaking the malt presence that tried to come through in the smell. It has a somewhat dry and bitter coffee aftertaste and finish. The palate is light - almost but more likely closer to a medium sort of body, comes off as its trying to be sessionable. Carbonation comes across like a good American Black Ale should. Overall, for the most part, I like it, but I think I’d rather look for some other Black Ales before this.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
500ml bottle from Julio’s.
Appearance : Pitch black with big foamy brown head.
Aroma : Great citrusy and piny notes with nice floral notes. Some coffee and light chocolate. Big pine needles but not too resinous nor oily.
Taste : Great roasted malt with coffee and piny hops. Finish malty with piny hops. Floral and resinous finish. Persistent coffee and piny notes. Juicy citrusy notes on the fininsh. Light astringency on the bitterness... bitter coffee more than bitter hops.
Palate : Soft but lively carbonation... fizzy but brief. Hard to explain but really enjoyable.
Overall : Really nice beer. A great example of the style. Really well balanced and tasteful. Pretty drinkable and light for a 7 abv beer. Really nice appearance and palate. Another great beer from Maine Beer Co.

Shared bottle at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with minimal head. The aroma has a bit of milk chocolate, quite a bit of vanilla, and a light smoke. The taste is quite bitter, roasty, more bitter, solid duration. Great in the style.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 (En fût sur place) Rôtie, verte et poivrée, elle reste une belle expérience pour un style qui m’excite de moins en moins. (En bouteille) Très vert, jus de lime avec un corps vraiment douillet, superbe.
