10/7/11. 22oz bottle. Black pour, brown under the light, with a small khaki head. Big hoppy aroma, perhaps a little musty and old, with a touch of coffee. Huge roasty flavor of coffee and dark chocolate with lingering hops and citrus. Not bad! Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Dark black pour from bottle. Taste is pine, leaves, nuts and oak. Smooth finish. Real nice BIPA. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours black with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are coffee , citrus, chocolate. The mouthfeel us bitter, roasty and dry with a heavy body. Great beer! Cheers!

2011-09-30. Black body with a nice foamy tan head. 4+ Flavour is fairly bitter, bit of an odd roasty earthy character. 6+ Aroma is modestly hoppy, green leafy hops, mild roast malt. 6+ Average palate. Decent. Bottle shared by Blankboy garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 30, 2011
Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Deep dark red, thick off white head. Aroma: Nicely hopped, good amount of malt and a hint of cherry. Flavour: Very very bitter, lots of malt too, like chewing on hoppy earth, very leafy and a super dry finish, nice enough. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Black brew with a creamy, tan head. Piney hop punch overpowering the roasted malt in the nose. More pine flavor with grapefruit, roast, and nuts. Too thin and subpar overall. SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma of pine and earthy hop with just hints of dark roasted grain. Flavor is much the same with a sharp earthy and piny bitter that lingers. Mouthfeel is medium body with high carbonation and kinda watery. Overall, not bad! kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Darkest brown... dark tanand head. Bitter enoughand aroma tois make youyou think you gotwant smelling salts or something. Just a crapload of Amarillo hops is all you’ll taste. Awesome! Tastebuds... prepare for destruction. You like this beer.
