Pours a very deep brown with a medium to large mocha head. The aroma is interesting. It has an aroma somewhat strong roast or coffee/nuts. It also has very clean/fresh hint of alcohol and earth or leaves. Medium to full body with a creamy, and slightly thick, texture. I like scotch and I like beer. I have yet to find a good beer that really captures both well. This is decent, but it doesnít do justice for either wonderful beverages.

Delightful nose and we?ll blended mild smokiness, thick and malty and warming. Almost no head when poured from the can, and no retention. Wonderfully complex and subtle, but lacked in carbonation and flat mouthfeel

From a can into a plastic cup at tailgating. Bought a variety pack because cans were required. Poured dark caramel with a modest tan head as near as I could tell. Great big taste of malty chocolate that came as a surprise given the circumstances. Very nice. Hope to find some on tap into a proper glass very soon.

Smells like water mixed with cheap whiskey, but not in a bad way. It tastes like a slightly lighter version on McChouff. Thatís a good thing.

Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is rich resin and spicy red berry fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery raisin weak spicy palate.

A very rich tasting beer. Lots of cherry & chocolate. A tad on the sweet side without that alcohol tang to offset it. An occasional beer. Couldn't drink more than one at a time.

Poured from can into tulip glass. Dark bubbly pour with a two finger tan foamy head. Plenty of lacing here. Glass is black with hints of ruby when held to light. Aroma is caramel, malt, black cherry, earthy. Pleasantly sweet taste and finish. Many have said cloyingly sweet but I donít find that at all. Body is fairly light, creamy texture. Carbonation is fizzy but quickly dissipates. My first of this style and I can see myself coming back to this.
