Very nice deep copper pour. Aroma is sweet caramel and a little herbal hops. Malts dominate taste profile with some dates, caramel, hint of toffee, and some citrus. Medium creamy mouthfeel with some spice notes on aftertaste. dwyerpg (6582) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 20, 2016
This has a winter warmer feel to it. A bit of spice with some malt sweetness, toffee maybe. OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Pint at Dram and Draught Raleigh. Good aroma, sweet. Roasty hoppy. Chocolate, caramel, mild grapefruit. Clean orangy brown color, ok head and lace. Moderate sweet and bitter flavor. Medium body oily creamy mouthfeel sweet bitter finish. Huh. Makes some think of a less exciting Arrogant Bastard i onceblind (11153) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Clear copper/dark amber under a thin off tan head. Rich dark plummy malts and biscuity tones fill the nose with a hint of raisin and earthy herbal bitterness. Full biscuity toast and plummy raisin flavor that’s gently herbal and gently bitter with a semisweet candi sugar finish but it’s so biscuity and piney and herbal that it’s all thrown askew. Just kinda okay. Like a "winter" black IPA. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Draft. They have succeeded in making a pretty nondescript stong beer here. It has everything you’d expect, booze, malt, caramel, slight herbs. Nothing stands out....

Solid winter concoction. Great maltiness balanced with a good hip kick. There's also a little spiciness that lends to a nice complexity.

Had on tap at brew pub in Bend. Clear, dark reddish brown. Piney flavor, but aftertaste disappears quickly. unclemike (3206) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy copper colored body. The aroma is grainy and a little lemon. The taste is malty sweet balanced with a mild bitter finish. Straightforward but good. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation bb (9916) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle. Blackish beer with a tan head. Light grapefruit aroma. Light grapefruit flavor with light chocolate and light roast. Medium bodied. Light grapefruit lingers with light chocolate and light roast. Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2016
Poured up on tap at AZ Strong Beer Fest 2016 where it exhibits a deep brown to amber colored body that supports a tan head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up kind of nutty, kind of a roasty malt bit and then kind of a vague slightly pine like hoppiness leading to a spicy black strap molasses note at the end of the draw. The taste delivers malt roastiness, a nutty sensation and then getting into spicy to almost pine like hops. It ends with a lingering dry roasted nuttiness. As it warms the spicy to pine hops and nuttiness grow.
