Tap @ O’Brien’s. Very dark upon pouring. Very sweet roasty aroma with alot of chocolate. Roasted coffee and sweet chocolate dominate flavors. Very full for the low abv.

Very nice beer provided by my nemesis The Fly. Roasty coffee aroma that carried through into the flavor without overpowering it.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Thanks to Alan (fly) for sharing this beer. From a growler poured at the brewery. Pours black with a tan head and good lacing. Huge coffee and light chocolate in the nose. Coffee, chocolate, and lactose in the flavor but with a smooth dry finish. Very drinkable and well made beer.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
Draft. Blackish beer with a thin tan head. Low roasty aroma. Roasty flavor with caramel backing and balanced hop bitterness. Roastiness not overpowering.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - FEB 27, 2006
Tap @ Barclay’s. Malty, chocolatey aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet. Thin, watery palate but full if flavor.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2006
Dark brown colour. Fairly rich malty, chocolatey aroma. Full malt character is sweet and rounded with light roasty accents. Has a bit of chewiness and, surprisingly, late alcohol. Drinks fairly big.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 Draught at Toronado, San Francisco. Opaque black, no head. Sweetish and very roasty with clean rounded mouthfeel. Dominated by hop flavours - grapefruit and licorice. The malt character is it’s weak side - it’s very clean and straightforward, leaving it far behind the top examples of the style.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2006
Dark brown with a moka head. Light chocolate malt aroma. Rather restrained chocomalt with crisp german hops, light fruity esters. Decent schwarze, very simple. Russian River Beer Revival & Barbecue Cook-Off, August 20, 2005.

Gorbalev (2953) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2005
On tap, Zeitgeist. Black, but light body, small white head. Light mouthfeel. Huge roasted coffee aroma. Really balanced roast taste all over a lager body. Wow, this is just about the best example of this style I have ever had. Excellent.
