COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
13.4P
The dark colour and intense taste is due to a unique process of malt fire-burning. A process that requires craftsmanship and precision from the brewer. As a result a beer has been created with a slightly sweet taste at first sip and a nice bitter follow through.

17thfloor (2437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Wow, retired. That makes this extra special! ha. Pours a clear but very dark seemingly dull/opaque reddish chocolate color with a really nice dense creamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet, grainy, malt flour, a bit roasty, balanced caramel, pretty nice. Flavor follows, a bit smokey, porter like roastiness, a little sweet tanginess, finishing sweet roasty with lots of caramel notes, long smokey bitter chocolate aftertaste but still some sour sweet tang that lingers. Medium bodied, just slightly chewy with great fine fizzy sizzling carbonation. Pretty darn good, love the smokiness!

deyholla (8334) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear brown with a beige head. Aroma had notes of roasted and burnt malts leading to a bit of a burnt caramel note. Flavor was nicely balanced between sweet malts and more grain malts towards the finish.

sweet nutty chocolate on the nose. some fruit as well. dark brown pour with a nice lingering of white head. watery mouthfeel that seems to not match the look of the beer. great malty sweetness on the palate. initial taste is a tad bit smokey with some sweet fruit. not a bad beer.

Dark brown brew that produced a small ammount of tan head that faded quickly. Nice aroma albiet to mild. Lightly toasted dark malts, possible smoke (can’t convince myself it’s there), maybe I’m finding the hidden smell of grape gum. This would taste much better if not hampered by excessive bitterness for the style. Still, highly drinkable. Fairly sweet and a shit load of toasted malts (mild overall). i may be confusing what I think is notable alcohol during every sip with the hops...go figure. Weak nuttiness? Just over medium bodied. The carbonation that at first sip gave me the ’pop’ impression has rounded out nicely now and is quite good and soft. Good malt middle and finish that takes a bit of a hit with the obvious excessive bitterness. I could drink this all night despite the impression that I didn’t like it. If you really want to enjoy this let it warm considerably...more than usual. Thanks for the beer, bro.
