Pour is mostly clear ruby and brown, slightly off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, slight fruitiness. Taste is roasted malt, dark fruits, slight herbal spiciness, some bitterness. scottsideleau (2) - Tiverton, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 30, 2014 does not count
A dark pour with a thick head. Strong, but smooth, malty flavor with a nice dry hop finish. Connor66 (75) - - DEC 30, 2014
From bottle. Brown dark color with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas, hoppy finish. Alcohol dose seem to bite at first but doesn’t last. Good drink over all

9/14/2011. From bottle. Brown color with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas, dried fruit, caramel, chocolate. Earthy, malty flavors, plenty of fruit and a light hoppy finish. Not bad at all. christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Medium dark bourbon clear colour under a large size, fine bubbled mid-beige lasting head. Sweetish caramel malt ’n smokey oak aroma. Medium smooth body carrying a serious tangy, ’in your face’ bitter start. Lighter caramel sweet malt and nutty flavours with some recurring smokey woody character. Strongish bitter finish and aftertaste. Very pleasant drinking. Nice.

decent dark ale...malty, not quite robust. medium bodied with a sweet roasty finish. I’d get again but wouldn’t go out of my way... HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Holy Grail bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers khaki head, dark brown color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: roast, nutty, grass, light molasses, bread. Palate: full body, average frothy carbonation, oily texture. Taste: smooth sweet malt and roast, very light bitter on the end, super smooth. Overall, the mouth feel and taste of this beer are awesome, super drinkable, well done, and just impressive. Love the US artwork too. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
