ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma: rich chocolate malts, a touch of coffee, very light caramel note, resin and piney hops. Pours brown, tan head with good retention and excellent lacing. Flavor: very nice interplay between rich malts and resiny hops. Chocolate and coffee dominate the malt profile, with a hint of toffee and a good dose of toast. Moderately high bitterness for the style, pine and some citrus, excellent balance. Medium body and carbonation, smooth texture. Another excellent HF brew.

DiarmaidBHK (4269) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Draft at armsby abbey. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Big nutty notes on the nose. Lots of roasted malt and roasted nuts on the tongue but with a bit of a forward hop thing as well. Finished clean. Another fantastic example of style from these guys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (5634) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2016
500 ml bottle from the source poured into a wine glass. The beer is a clear brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has notes of dried, roasted walnuts, earthy, bitter dark chocolate, and a bitter, roasty coffee. The taste is definitely more on the bitter side. I get a bit of ash and char. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Bottle date of 9/13/16.

Pours cloudy deep brown with low off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, hazelnut, light citrus, slightly roasty. Taste is roasty mild bitter with a mellow sweetish finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

bytemesis (7217) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours deep mahogany, medium beige creamy head, dissipates slowly, great lacing. Intangibles, check. Aroma is roasty, hints of molasses, ashtray, smoked hardwoods. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, roasty and a hint smoky. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Super solid for style. Not my favorite style though.

Stoned99 (1366) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
500ml bottle bought a while ago at the brewery. Bottle date: 11.17.15. Aroma: lots of caramel, nuts, molasses, roasted malt, a tad smokey. App: dark burgundy, small mocha head, great lacing. Perfect look! Taste and palate: light to medium body, a tad watery, smokey light lingering bitter finish probably coming from all the hops. Overall: better than expected. Not exactly my favourite style hence why it took a while before I open it but not disappointed. This feels really light. A great match with my rib steak.

Shawn and Co. are incapable of creating flawed beers. This is another perfect example of its style, thick and rich in the manner of a stout, like a triple-C malt-heavy liquid caramel infusion. Dont listen to me, just find one & drink it : )
