Pours a murky dark brown with a 3-4 finger head that lingers. Raisin cherry. Mildly sweet and tart, but finishes bitter. Medium body. Moderately fizzy. Medium finish. A touch boozy but moderately drinkable. I like it.

Draft. Dark cola pour with a thick tan head. Somewhat overwhelming yeast profile with a little chocolate and dark fruit. Kind of weird.

ttoadee (971) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Dark pour, thin tan head. Nose is dark, soft fruit. More sweet than bitter. Middle is tobacco, plums, and a hint of pepper. Finish is sweet and long. ABV hidden quite well. Try this.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, dark black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought big notes of dark fruit, caramelized sugars, toffee, molasses into some spice, clove, some slight vanilla into a bit of cocoa. Taste was a mix of earth, cocoa, yeast into a bit of caramel, molasses, lots of raisin, plum, touch of spice, finishing sweet.

Pumpkin87 (127) - - MAR 24, 2015
Pours an opaque chestnut with garnet highlights, and a big fluffy tan head that persists as significant lacing and decorative skim. Nose is sweet malt, roast nuts, dark fruits, ginger. On the palate, the major notes include caramelized banana, grapes and raisins and a spunky spiciness that mixes ginger with coriander and orange zest. There’s a bit of alcohol burn on the end along with bitter cola, but it’s more of a suggestion than a serious misstep.

Clownoisseur (362) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a dark brown, fluffy tan head that pillows up and recedes into fine lacing. Aromas are of subtle spices...ginger, cinnamon and some clove. Light roasted malt creeps in along with some alcohol. Taste has a nice crisp edge to it. Spices dance across the palate on a medium-to-high carbonation...which counterbalances the big malt bill nicely. Plenty of dark fruit tang along with earthiness and light roast. Finishes with a bit of alcohol sting, but it’s pretty well masked. Solid.

Bottle @ Home. Pours dark brown with a offwhite head. Aroma of malt, yeast, dark fruits, spice. Flavor is light sweet, malty, yeast, dates, spice, coriands. Thin to medium body, average carbonation. 300810
