VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Slightly minty notes (probably the juniper) and some coffee hints on the nose. Deep brown color with pronounced amber hues, soapy medium tan head. Flavor is dark chocolate with cacao nib pieces, juniper spice is noticeable in the bitterness and subtly in the taste. Medium body, good carbonation, finishes with an herbal snap. Was expecting to be overwhelmed with juniper and was not. It is an excellent interplay of what can normally be a strong spice in the depth of other flavors. Unique yet familiar--nicely executed.

This is a great dark amber. Pours perfectly and smells great. Chocolaty malt, and much lighter than I expected. The juniper berries add a nice twist to the finish.

It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts and some toast. The taste was of toast, minor hops and a little bitter. Thanks Hayduke!

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours amber with an off-white head. The aroma has biscuits, earthy British yeast, some juniper, nuttiness and smooth toast. It has a medium / light body with frothy sharp carbonation. The taste begins with a bit of astringency, toast, red fruits, woodiness (juniper?) and some toast. The finish is earthy, woody and some some fruitiness.

furthur (213) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle pour, black walnut colored body, creamy head, fades. Aroma is malt. Taste is malt, wet dog, slight juniper, some hops. Body is ok, moderate carbonation. Nothing special.

mikedR (1346) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Highly rated because better than the typical variety in this style. Very flavorful. Deviates from the style in the juniper berries, which work, and contribute a nice flavor to the beer. Good stuff.

mintzmeet (240) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Dark color like concentrated ice tea. Smells like wet coffee grounds. Nice amber flavor but roasted chocolate malt and strong nuttiness.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Dark copper, light brown. Malty caramel aroma. Mostly dry and bitter with a strong malt backbone. Palate has a very drying effect. Body is full throughout. Middle and finish have a nutty flavor, but it finishes super dry...Almost difficult to imagine having a second one. Overall full flavored very dry malty ale.

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
This was a joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a copper color like ice tea made with 10 tea bags. White head. Nose of moderately roasted chocolate malts and some Noble hops. Medium body. Some, flowers, nuts, and spice in flavor. Juniper is the spice. The juniper is big in the finish.
