Bomber. dark with tan head. More malty then hoppy but neither stand out. a little flat and unimpressive but not bad.

Lagerboy (2165) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Unclear darkest brown, creamy light brown head slowly fades. Pungent citrus grassy hops and smokey roasty malty aroma. Big bold bitter hop and burnt dark malt taste, some coffee and caramel. Average carbonation, full bodied, heavily hopped makes this brew DNFL (Definately Not For Lagerboys)

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

Roasty, nutty and grassy black IPA. A bit too much on the stouty side though.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
light brown, slight lime nose with toast and woody hop character. Earthy front, sweet, has some mellow haselnuss character, with toasted almonds, bitter chocolate. Sweeter interpretation, leaning towards the old India brown idea.

IndianaRed (4418) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise. Clear dark redish brown. Dense tan head. Muted faint aromas of light west coast citrusy hops and a touch of toasted malt. Flavor is definiately down a notch from standard CDAs in its sessionability but it i still and nice example of the style.

Sarlacc83 (2265) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2014
On tap. A: Opaque root beer brown according to my wife. (black. Its black.) with a thin, creme colored head. N: Hops display themselves through spruce, biscuit, cocoa, coffee, touch of black raspberries even. Mango and pineapple. Marshmallow. T: Bittersweet in equal proportions. M: Medium body bordering on thick. Lighter level if carbonation. O: A coniferous beast with a spritzing of sweets. Maybe too sweet, actually.

djd07 (14082) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Hopworks Bikebar. Pours a dark ruby brown with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is anise and chocolate. Medium mouth, rich malt, chocolate, light bitteness, good.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one! A-pours a brownish liquid with red esges. a light tan colored head is tight with great lace. S-hint of roasted maltiness, dark chocolate, burnt coffee up front. herbal marijuanna hops come through big time. touch of tea leaves accompany. T-the taste brings a light roasted malt, hints of smokiness. the herbal hops take over, touch of tea leaves and earthy. a little thinned out in the back. M-extremely smooth on the palate, lighter body, low carbonation that falls off in the back and is a little thin in boddy. D-pretty tasty, falls off in the back, the nose was great but the taste falls a little short of that. very earthy and dank like.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
In short: A ruby ale with restrained hopping. A few nice things, a few problems. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving the bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is dank hops, spicy leafy hops as well as some fresh basic chinese tea notes. This is not a home bomb. Taste is low roastiness, a cold cup of coffee, soft red liquorice candy, light caramel, iced-tea, hard-candies, cold green tea, milk chocolate an some cocoa powder, chalk. Hopping is rather restrained. Leafy, tea-ish, tobacco, and a tiny bit piney. Bitterness level is below average for the style. This is not a hop bomb and nor is it malt heavy. Finish is annoyingly chalky. Overall I thought it was an ok beer but certainly not something I will seek-out again. Another bomber I drank alone while at home. They say that for an alcoholic it is hard to admit that you drink alone because it is a sign you are an alcoholic. But I dont have a problem with that. Its admitting that I drink alone because nobody loves me that I have a problem with.
