Feb 2010: Brown 33cl bottle, drank three days after its best before date. This is gluten free, wheat free ’double dark beer’.
Dark it is, very dark indeed, a really deep ruby red colour to be truthful, with a tan collar and wisps.
The smells given off where complex and different, chocolate malts and liquorice, then more chocolate, dark chocolate actually.
The flavours were deep and rich, again a mix of chocolate and liquorice.
Good feel to this beer, rich, creamy and full of flavour.
Didn’t expect anything as good as this when I bought it, very impressed.

First full dark gluten free ive ever had. Great taste low carbonation. No raunchy bland sorgum taste. doublebock (558) - California, USA - APR 6, 2012
So this was my first Gluten free beer and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Its certainly unfair to compare this versus other true Belgian dubbels or other dark true beers. Comparing it versus Redbridge would be a better way to rank this. With that caveat, lets get into it.
Pours dark brown with a thick creme colored head. Toasted malt aroma with vinaigrette dressing notes. Flavor of molasses and raisins and red wine. echoey13 (4) - - APR 6, 2012 does not count
It’s good to see commercially available gluten free beers that are not made with mostly sorghum. The millet and buckwheat add a nutty and chocolate flavor. high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 17, 2012
A nice deep brown with a foamy tan head and lots of lacing. The aroma has some apples and a bit of hops, and the flavor has some more apples and fruit with a sweet and slightly sour aftertaste.

This is the best gluten free beer I’ve had - and that’s saying a lot. I’m actually enjoying it. It’s dark with a nice head. A good standard dubbel flavor, but you can recognize that something is a bit "off" and strange about it. Kennybellew (11) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2012
A millet beer. It tastes like a cider to me. Regretted it because I wanted a beer.

(Bottle) Pours dark brown with a small head. The aroma holds mild roast, light dark bread, glue, swimming pool, alcohol and liqueur. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and near medium acidic. Tones of mild roast, sugar and citrus acid. The mouthfeel is watery and medium carbonated. Acidic finish. Light bodied. Ron (4184) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2012
I had given this one to Dan for Christmas. Pours a dark red /brown color with small off white head. Aroma of slight fruit and malt and a little toastiness. Some malty flavors with a little bit of carmel and nice toasty flavors and weird sort of acidity and sharpness that is out of place. a little thin too. Thanks for Sharing Dan. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Tasted on 10/27/11 from a 500mL bottle purchased at Binny’s South Loop. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with just a tint of light allowed through, and a thick tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace, leaving uneven lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is a really weird, hot, grape juice, date, and fig aroma. The flavor is the same strange grape, vinous, date, and prune juice as the nose. The body is light, with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short, but hot prune, date, and grape juice finish.
