Amazing body, deep black color. Amazing nose of dark fruit roasted malt. Big mouth very smooth rounded. Heavy but not cloying. Excellent. Beatiful FES.

Draft at the brewpub. Black body, tan head, roasty nose. Mediocre example of the style.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Tap, 2007: Very black with a tan head. Tingly carbonation; chewy texture. Rich and roasty aromas. Complex flavors of toffee, milk chocolate, sugared tobacco, black licorice and creamed coffee. Only a mild bitterness to boot. Tasty beer, but residual sugars seem to be a bit much. I also yearned for a bigger hop presence to balance things out.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. This is my favorite beer from Maui Brewing Co. It is very dark with a slight ruby tinge at the edge of the glass where light is just barely visible. Heavy chocolate and roasted barley smells dominate the aroma. The flavor is awesome with heavy dark chocolate almost cocoa flavor with a lighter roasted flavor in the background. It is full bodied as expected and has great drinkability.

Hops in the nose and coffee with some perfume. Opaque with a nitro looking creamy tan head. Off flavors are very pervasive. Sweet, somewhat strong. Molasses. They didn’t hit this one.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2006 Draught at the brewery. Beer looks like spent motor oil—opaque, very dark brown/black with a small, tan, creamy, mostly lasting head.<P> The aroma is malty with moderate notes of roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, trace of molasses and shortbread; Hoppy with a light note or resin/pine; Light yeasty note.<P>The flavor is heavily sweet, moderately bitter with a long, warm, light-to-moderately sweet, moderately bitter finish.<P>The body is medium-to-full, the texture is velvety and the carbonation very soft.

Ernest (7351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Draught. Head is fully lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain, molasses), with notes of peanut butter and vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The best of the offerings at MBC. Kind of reminded me of Avery Czar...leaning more towards a foreign stout than an Imperial, but rich and delightful.
