Bottle poured into a snifter: Aroma of pomegrante shines through nicely! Awesome aroma. Taste smokey to me, slightly sour. Different for me, but grew on me as I drank. Intresting beer.

Pours an opaque, dark. Head is thin, yet dense and coherent; tan with a purplish tinge. Aroma is restrained, with alcoholic fruit (cherry, grape, and, yes, pomegranate) most prevalent. Some chocolate malts are present, but they are definitely relegated to the background. Taste is dominated by fruitiness (again, pomegranate and cherry) with burnt chocolate malts playing a supporting role. Alcohol is detectable throughout and almost threatens to upend the other flavors. In sum, a good, but not great, fruit beer. On a personal note, my inner epicurean applauds the brewer for trying this combination, as pomegranate and chocolate make an awesome combination. But this beer is a bit unbalanced. There needs to be more malt flavor here; I simply didnt get that roasted flavor characteristic of a stout. Alcohol needs to be toned down a bit. Some issues, but this could be a winner and fill a real niche in the fruit beer category.

My favorite Holy Mackerel variety. Coffee, burnt caramel and lots of earth on the palate. Delicious.

Loved this beer. Had if from a bottle and at the Alabama brewfest thing in Huntsville. I thought it had a bit of that sweet sour thing going on. Complex and interesting. Very good!

Pours with faint head that is dark brown, roasted flavor very apparent and finishes with the sweeter side of pomegranate. Hints of chocolate with adequate body. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

The appearance did not impress me at all. The head was not even a centimeter thick and vanished within a second. There was no lacing. It was black when looking through the glass, but towards the top you noticed some faint red hues. This beer was very drinkable though. Im not a fruity beer fan so my expectations were low. But I found the pomogranite mixed with stout to be quite tasty. The pom taste is not overpowering at all, and compliments rather than conquers. I wouldnt drink more than one in a sitting but found this to be a nice little treat at the end of the day.

Dark black pour with brown head. Roasted malts and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is very interesting mix of chocolate, fruit, dark roasted malts. An enjoyable beer.

This beer tasted wood-fired. I was happy to try this beer, especially because I’m a fan of the Golden Ale. I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes stouts, porters, or dark beers in general.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 THIS IS NOT AN IMPERIAL STOUT. THIS IS AN IMPERIAL BLACK ALE. That being said: this is a very complex beer. Dark and rich with a pretty quick finish. This is not a beer for the uninitiated. Complex fruity heads. Large aroma out of the bottle. Tastes like it pushes for its gravity. Might mature beautifully if put up for a year or two, and mellow that bite out a bit, or smooth it. Overall a very interesting offering.
