Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Courtesy of SHIG. Pours hazy opaque amber with copper hues and tan head. The aroma is earthy, spicy, roast and pine mixing together with mild grapefruit and black tea. The taste is similar with a pleasing mix of roasted malts, earthiness and malts to go along with a tasty hop bill like pine and citrus. Yum!

ggaughan (100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 24, 2010
The beer poured a dense black body with a nearly 1 inch head, nice tan head, fluffy, and gives way to thick lacing on the edge of the glass. The nose was chocolatey, malty along with a slightly floral nose. Taste has strong notes of bakers chocolate, sweet but with a hop presence as well. There is also a peppery touch on the tongue. All in all a smooth and creamy taste, fully body.
