Single bottle from Branson. Yeah pretty tasty overall. Not sure I can comment on how much the "hemp" flavor comes through but I noticed some nice bitterness and then darker grains and a little bitter chocolate.

Tasted 3/3/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown with a dense beige head. Aromas of cocoa and fudge and toasted cereal grains and a mild cola note. Medium bodied with a solid malt roast. Not too sweet, not too dry. Subtle fruity berry notes. Toasty, spicy, seedy and mildly cloying. Decent stuff!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted rye malt and leather aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet tingly finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, resinous hop, and a light mint component. Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate malt up front followed by resinous hop and a light spice in the finish. Not totally clean bit still really good. And very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head. The head went away kinda quickly, and thereís a good amount of of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, grain and piney hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like roasted and burnt/charred malt, nuts, pine hops and some bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís smooth and a bit sticky. Medium/high carbonation, and itís easy enough to drink. Itís a good overall beer, I enjoyed it. It wouldnít be hard to drink a few of these at a time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a deep black with a shallow light tan head. Aroma is roasty and chocolaty with a flavor that is again roasted malt with some chocolate. The hemp seed is very different and hard to compare. A very good brew and very drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Maybe mine is off. Pours black, small head. Hoppy, malty aroma. Taste is very sour, with hop bitterness. Not very pleasant at all.
