Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. The head has a good dose of chocolatey malt and a whisper of coffee. Nice citric nose. Palate is smooth and fairly dry. Taste pretty much follows the nose and the head! A nice mixture of orange citric hops and chocolatey malt. Little coffee. Finishes smooth and dry. Tasty.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours fairly dark brown with a slight beige head. There’s a roast malt aroma but the pine/citrus is dominant. Maybe even just citrus cause it’s sort of cat pee. Med body minus. There’s "brown" malt, but the hop is definitely cat pee. It’s not harsh. It’s just cat pee. Damn but it finishes not quite smoothly bitter, and leaves the mouth lightly coated with ...

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap @ Yard House Costa Mesa. Chestnut colored pour with an off-white head. Really interesting hoppiness. Lots of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. Pleasant roasted malt, cacao, and toasted bread. Reminiscent of a black IPA on the nose and tongue. Moderate roast and dark chocolate/cacao notes. Fairly bitter, but a slight toast sweetness and plenty of tropical fruit.

Tmoney99 (10986) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Can. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy white head that lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid complex beer.
