Iznogud (3798) - CROATIA - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at Harpoon Brewery, Boston. Dark amberish brown with beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, dry finish. chinchill (4993) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2015
undated 12 oz bottle served in pint glass (from April 2011 notes).
a very dark mahogany, but clear and not opaque. An somewhat aggressive pour provided only about 1 finger of short-lived head.
Sweet floral aroma, with a little less ’regular’ toasted malt dominance than expected. Plenty of sweet malt with a trace of hops. Not quite "rich" or complex. Hops and toasted malt are more balanced in the aftertaste.
M - medium/full body with enough carbonation to tingle the tongue.
A Munich-style session beer, this beer brought back memories of drinking this style beer in a Munich biergarten. jflopsu (1614) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma has a mix of malts, chocolate, and coffee. A light taste with chocolate, coffee, toffee, and some nuts. A mild aftertaste from the malts Quick3Beers (1232) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Very nice pour from a bottle. Dark, opaque, with a thin head, off-white with tan and blue notes. Aroma is sweet caramel, bananas, almost bananas foster-ish, with even a slight hint of bubblegum. Flavor is very nice, sweet, dark chocolate with a bitter chocolate finish. Nice full mouthfeel, overall very good beer. two7offsuit (448) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 10, 2014

On tap at the Vermont brewery: Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of grains, chocolate, and a bit of toffee. Taste is cereal malts, light cocoa, and bit of a hop bite at the end that doesn’t match the malt profile. Thinner than I expected, but this is a tasty beer. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and some coffee on the finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Not bad. NallePalle (646) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014

Bottle picked up at Jungle Jims from early backlog notes 07. Pours a basic brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, chocolate, mildly nutty with mild earthy hops. Pretty average stuff.
