COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Definitely not your Dad’s Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that’s as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

Bottle to glass at Joe and Maria’s in Norwood, MA. delicious aroma. There is nice roastiness as well as some great bittersweet chocolate. Faint bit of coffee. Dark oily thick pour with moderate off white head. Moderate carbonationand heavy mouthfeel. Nice and oily. Love it. Really a big fan of this beer.

Pours totally black with a frothy brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, caramel, chocolate, woody notes with hints of bourbon. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a roasty and woody finish. Awesome.

Not too thick, comes on like a stout without the glut. Shares features with a barleywine. Dark, dark pour from draft, three fingers of foam, and you taste the booze. I like that. Notes of cocoa on the nose with a background of bitter coffee. Tastes of chocolate and hop bitter finish.

bwa5879 (541) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Dark brown pour with quarter inch carmel brown head, looks a lot like cola. Smells along the lines of a porter or strong brown ale - Strong root beer/cola syrup, sasparilla, and licorice aroma, some chocolate as well. Foamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation, pretty clean finish. Flavor similar to an imperial porter. Robust roasted malts, piney hops, taste of dark bitter espresso, boozy woody oak, some molasses as well.

Fantastisk. Sort og tyk som beg. Smager himmelsk. Dejlig bitter. Må ikke være for kold. Den styrker på en kold dag.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - MAR 4, 2014
Very glad this is easily available in Chicago now. A silky, sensous work of art. Begins with creamy chocolate ice cream, then fades into nutmeg, toffee, cinnamon, and light espresso, then finishes with expressive pine hop bite. Not even a hint of booze (but you start to feel it pretty soon...) Its obviously not trying to be a mind blowing imperial stout, but that is where I have set the bar for getting a 5, so this only gets a 4.8. If you are into big dark hoppy beer, im sure you have already tried this, if you havent...well all i can say is you need to get on this pronto...

Drank to at Lord Hobo in Boston and it was awesome. Unfortunately i was enjoying myself more than those with me and was forced to drink the 22oz bomber at a very fast speed leading me to the conclusion that this beer is not only delicious but extremely effective.

In short: a viscous tasty dark ale.
Pours black with frothy creamy quite tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Roasty, spicy, wood, coffee aromas. MEdium body, viscous tecture, soft carbonation. Taste is roasty, coffee, spicy, raisins, some hints of wood. Quite long aftertaste. Smooth and very well balanced. Really enjoyable.
