This beer is perplexing, in a good way. From the bottle it pours jet black, with no head... Just a tan halo. The aroma is sour and alcoholic, with a hint of chocolate. The flavor is suprising. Sour/Tart and carbonated at first, but finishes sweet and creamy. The finish is a delightful blend of chocolate, molassses, and a slight smokey-woodsy flavor. After reading prior reviews, I was very surprised at how pleasant this beer is. Very mild and drinkable, unlike the look and aroma suggest. Very good!

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 Quickly diminishing head on top of a black but not thick pour. Not very aromatic, but a little sweet spiceyness, like a snickerdoodle cookie. Lots of sweet grainy flavor. No hops or spice. Not too shabby. Good chick beer...it looks hardcore, but is pleasantly mild.

Very good taste almost fruity, no hoppy taste at all. Tasted almost like a chocolate stout.

Call it unique--not good--but unique. It reminded me of foul tasting city water. It smells like Sao Paulo.

Bottle poured black! with a small head that was gone fast. Aroma was of wet cardboard. Flavor was good but different??? What is that taste?? Roasty caramel, chocolate. This is a good beer overall and I liked it, but the aroma is of wet cardboard that I am sure of.

When I first poured this beer into my scooner glass I noticed the aroma. The wife also noticed that right of the bat when I poured the beer. It had the aroma of being in a musy old bar which brought me back to those days bartending at the bowling alley. Good beer would reconmend it.

Bottle. Dark dark dark red with a big tan head. There’s not much aroma to speak of ... mostly musty and coffee. It doesn’t really taste like much, some coffee, some chocolate milk, that’s about it. Not bitter, not dry, not sweet, not smooth, not bad, not good, it just is.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Bottle - Pours a clear, dark reddish black/brown with a very thin tannish head that quickly disappears ... carbonation is low. Very slight roasted malt aroma. Flavor is a bit unusual and ot very strong... almost like a diluted red wine. Little evidence of maltiness or hops. Finish is weak with not bitterness. Unusual and not really that good.

Reddish black with light brown head that diminishes quickly , slight lace. Slightly roasty nose, some oxidation, light caramel, molasses and grainy notes. Medium-light body, sugary sweet, in a flat pepsi kinda way. Very little bitterness. Not all that good IMHO.
