Bottle at Joe’s ridiculous going away party tasting. Pours a murky brown with a thin beige head. Big and malty. Sticky hops all over. Murky and malty. Nothing crazy going on, but still decent enough. hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2013
1 pint can. Poured a brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Roast, chocolate, with some dank green / floral hoppiness. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
(22oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and citrus. Flavor of grapefruit, light pine, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malt. Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
The hops have faded somewhat, yet the shwartzbier, roasted black beer aroma and flavour remain. And so I get a somewhat citrus integrated shwartz. Good aroma, good colour and off-white head and lace. Very drinkable. Pleasant, below average as a straight out black ipa.Can from FlandersNed in Warren. Middling mouthfeel. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2010

Thx. to Jeff. Bomber sample @ RBBSG 2012. Dark brown with a light bordeaux hue, little head. Sweet and hoppy smell, mocha, touch roast, light berries, plenty of american hops, caramel. Taste is bitter coffee grounds mixed with caramel, sweet mocha, some roast, sweeter chocolate, pushing away a bit the pine hops which are rather tuned down.tad fruits, hint brown sugar. Tad softer carb. medium body. Good stuff. alexsdad06 (11242) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, dark chocolate, earthy and light citrus hops, gets some sweetness, a bit thin and watery to the finish, ok.

Pint can from Capone’s and State Line. Pours chestnut toward black colored with 1-finger tan head. Nose is choc malt, resiny hops, cacao. Tastes piney hoppy, with the hops taking the forefront, and a cacao and black patent malt flavor at mid-palate. In fact, the hops get dominant late, which is OK because the malt balances them out well. This one is very good. gnoff (11145) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2011

They marked it as 7% ABV
Clear dark brown color, creamy light brown head. Roasted, malty, coffee, citrus taste. Citrus and bitter aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, pretty high bitterness. Citrus and roasted scent.
Big fucken can @ home, thanks to BoostIPA. Deep burgundy orange appearance with a foamy brown head. Minty, chocolate, burnt malty nose. A touch of butterscotch. Body is a bit flabby. Lots of toffee and burnt sugar. Pretty bitter flavor. Disappointing.
