22oz bottle. Pours clear dark brown/black. Aroma of molasses, jasmine, peat, raisin, caramel. It has a floral and sweet character with an underlying earthiness in the nose. Flavor is molasses, caramel, floral, peat, roasty. Quite a nice sweetness and floral up front with a deeper earth and coffee in the finish.

Black Motor oil with tan head. Faint floral notes on the nose. Taste is roasty malt porter with hints of honey and wildflowers. Pretty smooth but not all that flavorful.

Kind of light bodied for such a big dark beer. I guess that’s why it comes down on this side of the porter vs stout line. Prunes, spice and burnt toffee on the nose. More dark fruit on the palate, with some roast malts and sweet spices finishing. Rather complex and greater than the sum of its parts. Thebullshornbar (74) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Overall we were expecting a lot more, especially with a name like suede. Bouquet of deep, dark malts, with little hints of unknown florality. The beer becomes pretty one note after that, alcohol and malt, balanced with a bitter and roasty finish. Its a decent porter, curious to see how it would age, but nothing to go out of the way for.

Aromas of dark earth, flowers, cocoa, espresso, and dried dark berries. Dark brown with bronze highlights and a lasting beige head. Dry, lightly bitter, well balanced, roasty, pretty savory. Medium-full bodied, nicely carbonated. zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Soy, chocolate, and floral berry aromas. Light beige head and dark brown and reddish body. Dry coffee, some light earthy fruit and floral Notes with a slight honey aftertaste. Smooth and refreshing on the palate. jb (3454) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Appearance is clear, dark, with reddish highlights. Spotty lacing. Nose is cherry cola, and a bit of licorice along with roasted notes. Taste is toasted, with espresso and anise. Gets fuller body as you hold it in your mouth and as it ends. Interesting.
