Bottle from kappeldave123. Thanks!
Pours a deep, shoe-polish brown with an aroma of Jello chocolate pudding snack pack; flavor follows suit but adds a touch of molasses. Average mouthfeel. Nice beer that looks like a lion but purs like a kitty.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 bottle thanks to KAggie and zinister. First American to rate this. Yes! This poured dark brown with a cola-like texture. Smell was roasted malt, but had some funkiness to it that I couldn’t put a description to. Taste was of roasted malt and molasses. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a dry finish. Interesting. Definitely different.

Beautiful dark, red-brown with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and grapefruit. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, caramel, hints of coffee and a dry grapefruit. It’s nice and smooth, and the dry and slightly bitter grapefruit makes it refreshing too.
