COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savor this refreshing glass of complexity. Dark & Dry's assertive tartness is pleasingly balanced by a hint of molasses and brown sugar.

Bomber - Pours ruby red with a ring of tan head. Nose is apple cider, tart with a dry white grape note. Taste is dry with mineral notes, some red apple skins and flesh, light tartness. Real mellow and smooth, without much of an aftertaste. Light body and nice carbonation. Solid.

GT2 (9170) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 21, 2013
651mL Pours ridiculously deep, clear cola brown. Big carbonation and actually a large tan head forming and quickly dissipating. Darkest cider I’ve seen in awhile. Nose is dusty, apple skin, baby powder, decent. Taste is watery and bland, not much substance, some cinnamon. But overall it tastes more like freezer veggies and sparkling apple seltzer.

Pours a very dark brown cola ruby .. . not a lot of foam .. . the added sugar/molasses is great and not overdone at all .. . quite a rich cider, and not as dry as i expected .. . a winner, a great cider and even though not a huge fan of hot cider, i think this would work great for that .. . .
Do you know what it’s like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don’t, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that’s a dumb question... skip that.

Pours an amazing rich dark reddish brown. Aromas of apple, brown sugar, toffee, cinammon. Taste - liquid apple pie. Sweet, rich, flavourful, and somehow bready (pie crust!). Really unusual cider, but drinkable and enjoyable.

Bottle shared by Dallas. Pours a dark copper color. A rich sweet nose with some apples and bready notes. The flavor is quite nice: seemingly caramel malts, sugary, toast, massive sweet apples. Nice. I wonder what’s in here to get the darker color?

Draught at Mckay’s Taphouse, Bellingham
Dark amber color, with creamy head. Never had a dark cider like this before; it has a moderate aroma of red apples, and very light hazelnuts; sweetish flavor, with nice flavor of red apple juice.
More fruit juice than cider.

Contains added brown sugar and molasses. Cloying sweet. Disgusting and undrinkable.
