Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2009
courtesy of Chris Beers - dark black colour with a little dark beige foam; deep aroma of pralines, black chocolate and tar; fairly roasted; thick and oily mouthfeel; moderate carbonation and a robust sweetness; fair late bitterness before a chocolatey festival in the finish - a powerful dessert beer

12oz bottle. Poured a dark black, with brown edges, and a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, cherries (or is it the pomegranate juice), caramel, and dark berries. Tastes of chocolate, same berriness, caramel, roast, some dark fruits, vanilla, and had a light coffee finish. Alcohol content well hidden.

12oz bottle @Noogfest4.0-thanks gunhaver–pours a light brown head and black color. Aroma is dark malt-coffee/roasty. Taste is rich dark malt-coffee/roasty/chocolate. Smooth, rich. Soft carbonation.

Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Oakes bottle, brought from Florida. I liked its smokiness, not the addition of pommegrant juice. Its black with a white head. It has a sour finish.

j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle from Dakine, thanks Dak. Pours a dark black with a medium to large tan head that falls off quickly. Sweet berry notes, chocolate syrup, roast. Thin to medium bodied. Starts off with a huge rush of sweetness, that was most unexpected. The pomegranate comes through big time here and is quite interesting. Finishes with a nice roast bitterness.

deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malts, dark grains and a touch of coffee with a hint of underlying pomegranate. Flavor is similar with roasted malts and dark grains up front with a bit of tart pomegranate underlying.

hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Decent retention. The bold, acrid aroma provides heaps of smoke, charcoal, espresso grounds and tart berries. Medium to full-bodied with ticklish carbonation. Sweet and acidic berries, bitter chocolate and charcoal malt. Burnt, tangy, drying finish.

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap in Plantation, FL. This is nice. Very nice actually. No real hint of the pomegranate, just a nice chocolate and coffee scented beer with some of the same flavors on the palate. Pours very dark with a very small head. Good amount of hops. Well done.
