Bottle from friend from FLA. great aroma if grains and spice. Rye is fantastic...I may have to do some Rye aiPAs next. Poured black slight roast but more bittersweet chocolate, great dry crisp finish.
Dark beer with a brown slick for a head. Rich dark fruit nose with lots of molasses. This is a rich sweet beer with dark brown sugar and molasses, dark fruit, chocolate, and a hint of spice. Interesting use of squash. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours Marshal Zhukov black with a small, creamy, beige head. The roasty aroma is a combination of autumn spices, vanilla and mocha. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor offers deeply roasted malt, charcoal, dark chocolate and an unsavory note of cardboard. Finishes with a roasty kiss of licorice and more cardboard. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian! Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Thanks to Hallinghansen. Much appreciated. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Spices for sure - ginger, rye but plenty of good roasted malts. Smooth and dry. Some coffee and fruit. Quality! hallinghansen (3193) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at Cigar City Brewpub. Black body with a small light brown head. Light malt, roast, caramel, ripe fruit, wood, cocoa, rye, pumpkin. This is delicious. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pour is black with a tight mocha colored head. Nose is heavily spiced, ginger bread, nutmeg, cinnamon, pine needle. Taste is spicier, still a ton of spice. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg with a fair about of pine needle and lots of cayenne pepper spice. Body is full, mild carbonation, soft palate.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, a lot of spices, some squash/pumpkin notes, light rye, a lot of malty sweetness, and some light hop notes. Flavor the same with sort of a weird blend. Average to smoother texture. Not awful, just expecting better. fonefan (49399) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2014

Bottle to flute...thanks Ferris
Nice gourdy aroma, kind of like pumpkin, but maybe squash. Theres something sweet, but not overly sweet, perhaps beet. There’s also ginger and a touch of cocoa, and burdock. Its appearance is a deep brown with a ringed tan head. Taste is spice, red pepper, chocolate, and nutmeg.

Bottle - Cinnamon, cardamom, chocolate and earthy squash. Jet black with a decent brown head. Chocolate, cocoa, sweet starch and a nice sweet finish. I like that it isn’t over the top and offers a nice chocolate base to fall back on.
