On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a deep mahogany color with a medium grey head. A nose of bitter hops and chocolates. The flavor is bitter dark chocolate and hops, lingering sweet roast and coffee. Very good.

gunnar (9019) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from Half Time webshop. Pours almost pitch black with a big creamy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice and orange. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Taste of dark malts, weak roasty and some good piney hops towards the lingering dry bitter finish.

Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy with notes of dark malt and roast. Good on the palate. Good beer.

10/18/13. On tap at Proof. Black pour with a small tan head. Boozy aroma, resin, maltiness, some oxidation. Disappointing flavor as well, boozy, resin, dank, oxidation, seems old possibly. Big meh, big disappointment.

Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2013
22oz bomber. As soon as the top was cracked I could smell yummy hops. It pours nice and dark with a full dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops and some citrus hops as well as lighter notes of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate. The taste is right there! Yum. I get a pleasing fairly rich grapefruit like citrus hop flavor and bitterness that rolls into a mix of chocolate malts, dark roasted malts and then just the right amount of burnt malts. It only grows in citrus hop bitterness to midway as resiny pine hops join in and then into the finish the hops sweeten up just a tad to add little bit fuller mouth feel. Darn tasty stuff from one of my favorite breweries.

for some reason, this didnít quite gel with me .. . deep brown .. . mild rickets of foam .. . medium mild roast and burnt grass (not the good kind) .. . a touch soapy on the finish .. . rather mundane .. . . iím a dropout cub scout, i cheated on my knots and never carried a first aid kit...

laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 21.05.2013
Instant pine resin -aromas when opening the bottle. Aroma has resin, some vanilla, woody tones and hints of tobacco. Flavour has cocoa, hops, vanilla, and some doughy tones. Also some rye. Feels a bit messy and odd for a BIPA, but nice anyway.
