Very dark redish brown with a thick tan head. Fruity and malty notes. Malt, chocolate, liqorice and fruit. Full body with a long, bittrsweet finish. oobawa (1398) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Pours dark, dark brown and thick and chewy and hazy and very, very inviting. The head is frothy but restrained, with some lacing as it fades. Smells like tea and chocolate and caramel, begging you to take a sip. Tastes immediately sweet in a rush of toffee and sweet tea, yet then grows mildly fruity and bitter. The citric hops show up on the moderately bitter, clingy finish, providing a nice balance to the unending malt sweetness. Gets a little much as it warms, but still a nice bottle.

Very sweet Malty strong ale, hops do a fairly decent job of attempting to balance this out, very yeasty, bottled 2007, opened 2011. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with a little bit of a red hue to it. Off white head with a few streaks of lace. Nose brings forward a cacophony of different scents, including raisins, dark fruit, booze, roasted malt, and a bit of dark rum. Taste pulls everything together quite well, accentuating the dark fruits and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Drinks really well and glad to try it when I did a few months back.

I would have to answer the style question by saying that in the last few years this type of ale has come to most beer drinkers attention by stones sublimely self rightuous. This is a black ipa, plain and simple, great roasted malt aroma and flavor on the front of the tongue, and spicy and flowery hops at the back of the throat. Its a wonderful interpretation of a black ipa and an overall style that is going to become very popular in the coming years. back (2152) - Holstebro, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010

nice fruit cocktail in hop brew. sweetish with a bit of rusty oil can in there the beer is zesty and bright though still aged well and refined. hops come through well enough with a pine cone and flower character that i am fond of. quirky? yes! and good.
