said to be top fermented…
Black color with creamy head. The aroma is very nice, roasted malts and wood oven bread. The mouthfeel is a bit weak, the dark malt provides some light sourness, and the bitterness is quite low.
An interesting semi-experiment.
Bottle. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, notes of caramel, light nutty and hops. Dry finish. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
Dark brown, medium head, cocoa and light chocolate on the nose, light body, mellow. brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
On tap @ 10 Barrel. Dark cola colored beer with khaki foam. Roasty and slightly floral aroma. A bit of dark fruit, some bread, and a hint of licorice. There’s a lot more sweetness on the tongue than I expected. Good roasted malt character along with a lot of bread and dough. Slight earthy and floral hops. Not bad. bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours ruby black with a 2-finger tan head. The hints of chocolate are not subtle. Medium plus body with very smooth carbonation. Flavor is very smooth dark malt with some chocolate for sure, and I am getting after notes of banana. Light, but banana. This finishes well balanced, not very bitter. It is really a tasty ale. Could be my desert island beer.
