Sampled at the brewery. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts and resiny hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, some coffee a touch of perfume and some hoppiness. Good stuff. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Draft. Chocolate malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate head. Mildly sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Okay. bytemesis (8257) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Tap. Pours deep red mahogany, medium creamy tan head, huge staying power, great lacing. Aroma is roasty, a hint of chicory, pine, astray, touch of rubber. Flavor follows, light plus sweet and bitter, more roasty than IPA. Bitterness without flavor character, which is a bummer. Medium body, great mouthfeel.

Dark brown/black, brown head.
Hoppy, roasted aroma, phenolic, burnt popcorn.
Dry, light to medium bodied, high bitterness, low CO2.
Hoppy, harsh, phenolic taste, spruce, burnt notes.
Pint on tap. Opaque with a lasting creamy film on top. Nose is mild mocha with a hint of citrus zest. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, grapefruit, resiny herb, caramel and some coffee on the finish. Almost seems like some wheat in there too. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and an intriguing balance. Itzjerm (2811) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Hoppy bitter bite but more a chalky bitter bite than something enjoyable. Sweet start but very average. Not super impressed not bad good average beer.
