1/20/2011. 22 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nutty aromas with dark fruit, malt and spices. Not overly hoppy, but with good balance. Flavors are malty and fruity.

Subtle coffee aroma. Has hints of coffee and caramel in the taste, with more of a darker taste pervading the drink. It has a lingering bitter aftertaste, but is very smooth. Great winter beer!

Bomber. Pours dark and tastes great. Small head that disappears quickly but a nice stout for sure.

650ml bottle. Big, dark and punchy. Toast, caramel, roasted nuts. A little heavy on the leathery yeast, but still tasty enough, warming and with good hop bitterness.

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours a cola brown with a clean roast aroma. Taste is a malty flavor with some IBU in the aftertaste. The simple bitterness lingers on the palate. A good seasonal that tastes and feels appropriate for the winter months.

Aquilo (539) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of dried fruit, molasses, and brandy. Flavor is a robust juxtaposition of umami and snappy hop bitterness. Very smooth finish. All around, this is just a great holiday ale.

This Alt style dark ale is a deep dark brown in color, almost the color of Cola and it has a thick tan head. It is a medium bodied beer with a rich toasted barley and light chocolate taste which is thrown off by an odd, almost citrusy finish. In conjuction with the odd finish it is a little higher on the IBU scale than I care for. By itself I wouldn’t pick this one as my drink of choice, but oddly enough when I began to drink it with food, I just happened to be eating Kerry Gold Dubliner Cheese and a Gala Apple, it was much more tolerable. I assume because the sweetness and strong tastes helped to mask the hoppy bitterness of the beer allowing me to enjoy other aspects of the beer a little.

Bottle from safeway, san francisco. Dark brown color, hint of red. Aroma is roasty malts, some spices, vanilla. Medium body, roasty, spices. Quite nice but lacking body. Some hops at the end.
