(22oz bottle) Pours a clear mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, molasses, and light peat. Flavor of roasted grain, caramel, earth, toffee, and molasses.
Bottle. Clear very dark brown color, tan head. Aroma of fig, raisin, brown bread. Taste is brownies with dark fruit. Not bad. deyholla (12195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near clear deep amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread with some sweet grains and a touch of toffee. Flavor has lots of bread and grains with a bit of toffee towards the finish that adds a bit of complexity. kevinator (2704) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
This was OK and fit most of the style points. Mild burnt sugar aroma. Dark molasses brown with virtually no head to the point I was worried it went flat. It didn’t, but the carbonation was low and the weight somewhat heavy. It coated the mouth and felt syrupy. More burnt sugar and molasses flavors with very little hops presence. Decent but needs some fine tuning. Stevesie (336) - - NOV 16, 2013
From bottle. Expected dark pour with tan head. Fairly clean and light for the style, which for me is okay. Lacks the smokiness and boozy undertones that is often associated with the style. Not bad, but still not my thing. OKplus (788) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A - An aggressive pour yields a cola colored brown body with a tight-knit creamed head that forms a dense collar and retains pretty well.
S - Heavy caramel, toffee and a good dose of chocolate. Hints of wood, mushrooms, and earthy peat. Acidic grapes and some alcohol come out when swirled.
T - Thin dark caramel, raw brown sugar, cocoa powder, some tart artificial fruit flavor becomes more pronounces as it warms up. Has a sugary boozy finish.
M - Lighter body for the style, low carbonation, wet boozy finish.
Started off good with the appearance and aroma but the flavor was less than impressive. Too much raw sweetness and the flavors didn’t seem to meld together. The alcohol just stood out like a sore thumb while some of the ingredients seemed artificial. This only became worse as it warmed.

Ruby brown color with lasting tan head. Earthy peat, toasted peanut, chocolate, toffee aromas. Smooth medium body. Nice peanut butter, chocolate, toffee, earthy molasses flavors--good. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown color with red highlights and a small cream-colored head. The aroma is full of caramel and dark fruit, with a good dose of alcohol mixed in. There is also a hint of chocolate in the aroma. The flavor has a little bit of peat smoke, with a good amount of toffee and caramel. I get a little dark fruit but the malt and smoke notes come through the strongest. There is also a little bit of alcohol in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
