surprisingly light considering its very dark color. Sweet and flavorful at the front and refreshingly clean at the back end. I like unique, fruitful beers and this is exactly that.

Silvan7 (793) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle @ home. Birra marrone, velata, con schiuma beige fine, ma poco persistente. Aroma tostato, di caramello, cacao amaro e caffè in chicchi. Leggera liquirizia. Abboccata, acidula, si ritrovano caramello , tosatura oltre a frutta secca (noce) e caffè. Di nuovo leggera liquirizia. Corposa, buona carbonatazione, poco calda, rotonda, equilibrata ed armonica.

Nero55 (821) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit esters (grape), and some sweetness. Light body, moderate to heavy sweetness, and very light roasted malt notes. Too sweet.

Other than some roasted malts this one is a very watery wimpy brew that the only thing going for it is you could chug several of them down and still walk a straight line. Had a feeling it was going to be a let down but had to buy one bottle of it just to say I tried it.

Spab (2670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
On tap at the Don Mills Bier Markt. Pours a red-tinged dark brown with modest-sized light tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel, maple sugar and some toasted graines. Flavour is toast, sweetish caramel, some chocolate and a maple sugar note. Lighter body than I’d expected. Decent enough.

Onslow (1232) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brew with tan head, good lacing and head retention. Aroma of roasted grain, burnt toast, vanilla. Taste is sweet malt and vanilla up front transitioning to a bitter dry burnt grain taste. Astringent hops at the end, a pleasant toasted grain taste at the very end. Tasty!

The first beer that I can smell vanilla. So quite good aroma for that. Nothing cool or bad in appearance. Tasted good...

exeter (438) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours very dark, no light getting through. Tan head with nice lace. Tastes of black coffee, molasses, vanilla and roasted barley. Some lingering bitterness but the beer is too thin for the type.

HampshirePhil (187) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
12oz bottle - Dark black with a creamy pale head with a smooth carbonation taste that is an easy drink and smooth on the palate.

On tap at Copacabana. Fruity, malty, clean and crisp. MIld bitterness. Good stuff.
