BCTC. Hazy brown and foamy. Tart and cocoa aroma. Tart mild cherry fruity with cocoa and dry tart mouth-coating finish. Fizzy. Pretty good. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 16, 2010
750ml bottle from hopdog I believe. Rating #80. Very dark brown pour, for some reason I envisioned this was going to be yellow/straw colored instead. Aroma is hard to pin down, dark fruitiness (raisins maybe), caramel malts. No big sourness, a slight tartness but that was it, very light on the palate as well, pretty good stuff, not what I expected at all. (1121) SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a dark, cloudy purple with a crazy beige head. Aroma of wild yeast, grape, toasted grain. Flavor has signs of dark toasted grains, tart, wild yeast. Mouthfeel is light-med. body with high, fizzy carbonation. Pretty good stuff.. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2009

Nice looking brown beer. THin head. Somewhat tart body with malty, tart, clean flavors. Somewhat yeasty at times and nicely spritzy.

A very solid oaky flavor. Gushed all over the place. Started funky and nasty but eventaully became just solid oak with some funk. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2009
750 ml bottle at Woodshop. Brownish pour with smallish head. aromas were fruit and some tart. Flavor was a bit more sour. Sweet too. Not super sour but still pretty good. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle @ BCTC 2010. Brown, tan head. Nose is that of a nice brown ale along with more chocolate & some alcohol. Flavor is tart chocolate, a bit too bitter & lemony, alcohol. Meh. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2009
