Thanks to aceofhearts for sharing this awesome beer!
"The diablo" pours a light muddy chocolate brown with a light beige head. Smell is light and bright, fresh malt with just a hint of alcohol. Taste is pretty hoppy up front with earthy and piney hops and dark and toasty malt. Beyond that, there is an oaky drying characteristic. Slightly bubbly mouthfeel. Really nice woodsy and hoppy toasty malt combo. As good as it is unique. Thanks again.

The nightcap from Ushitona with TimE. Clear ruby/orange color with a tiny ring of off-white as a head. Sweet cotton candy, light pine hops. A sticky sweet malty taste up front as it fades through the middle leaving a lingering grapefruit peel bitter follow. Another tasty Ji-biru!

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 A very potent brew, with a very sweet nose, that hits powerfully on the first sip. Some definite, candi sugar and caramel notes

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Pours a deep ruby/brown. Aroma is fruits, sweet malts and slight alcohol. Full bodied and properly carbonated. Flavor was of sweet molasses, s touch of roasted malts, hops, and a bit of dark fruits. Finished with some bitterness and a some alcohol warmth. Very tasty.

Hazy deep amber color. Peaches, apples and citrusy notes along with some subtle cookies. Full on hops, hit the mouth ( definetely an American Barley) at the start. Palate is well balanced with some caramel notes. Finishing bitter with notable malt presence as well. Well made
