Son in law brought this home. Nice dark beer, good colored foam head. Strong taste, not too sweet, nice bitter. Wonder of it need more cooling? Beer to remember and drink again.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle sample courtesy of The Losh. Very dark oily pour lets in some light creating an ambery hue. Has a moderate beige cap. The nose is very roasty, and hints at coffee and vanilla, with some grassy hops. Sweet, but fairly balanced by floral bittering hops. Medium light body,Long bitter finish with musty like black coffee in the end. A good effort from this brewer.

mzaar (1522) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
Mörkt öl, nästan svart, med ett fylligt capuccinoskum som så sakteliga lägger sig. Tunn arom, honung och mörk sirap. Bättre smak, där honung och röda bär går igenom i en trevlig sötma.

ElDesmadre (1482) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown with a frothy, moderately durable head, Moderately roasted aroma with some coffee, caramel, dark chocolate and some vinous elements. Taste is only slightly sweet in the finish, coexisting with a light bitterness. Moderately roasted taste with moderate caramel-coffee-chocolate elements. Everything about this beer is moderate and forgettable.
