I loved this. I canít decide whether I like this or the Belhaven better. I had them back to back and I still canít decide. This beer leaves a fantastic taste in your mouth for literal minutes after each sip. Apparently Iím a Rahr fanboy now.

Tried on tap @ Ginger Man in Fort Worth. Beer has a dark appearance with a rosy hue. Thick, foamy head sustains for several minutes. The aroma was soft and subtle, and warms the nose. Initial taste was a soft bitter flavor mixed with caramelized malts. It had a thick feel over the tongue and finished rather dry with a sustained sensation of tingling in the center of the tongue. Overall this was a fine specimen that can only be found on tap. Rahr has done it again!

dyetube (1184) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle from Kegs and Barrels. Pours a deep brown/black with a thin ran head. The aromas are barley, chocolate, coffee. The mouthfeel is sticky with a medium body. Thus was a really nice beer! Cheers!

Dark coffee, woody, and malty flavors. Like drinking velvet, itís very rich and flavorful. Very tasty beer! Love the coffee flavors and how smooth it goes down but wished the malt taste lingered as long as the coffee.

This is a great ale. Dark brown almost black with a malty taste with just enough hops to my liking. The alcohol is a bonus.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle courtesy of angrypirate06. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of peated malt, sweet caramel, spicy, dark fruit. Tastes of smoky malt, chocolate, earthy, sweet, fruity. Very enjoyable. Texas craft beers have come a long way over the past 6 years.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Rock on mar! Now find me the glass to go with the beer! Brown pour. Beef jerky aroma with some peat and burned sugar. Flavor is peaty, smokey, meaty and has some caramel notes. Very interesting. Thanks mar. Now FIND ME THE GLASS PUNK! Well I found the glass and I owe a huge thanks to Ericandersnavy! What a great guy, thanks! Beer is even better from its proper glass!

Deep translucent prune color, nearly completely flat- headless. The aroma is a thick raisiny, pruney smell and the flavor is the same, like a simpler, lower alcohol Quad. this is very nice, focus, and sweet with a little hoppy tingle in the aftertaste. From a Trade with EricAndersnavy- thanks!
