2013-01-02 - on draught at Indie Alehouse. Kinda black with tan/light brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma - well, black IPA - dark roast but not too much coffee or sweetness, and lots of resin bitterness, definite alcohol presence. Taste follows - simple, drinkable, sneaky-boozy ... solid body, decent carbonation, a little astringent from the hops inititally, tails off to balanced light roast / dry bitterness, and an emerging herbal almost minty character - really good, hides that alcohol fairly well too. Yumm.

neongolden (1524) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
(On tap at the brewpub, March 8 2014) Pours a clear dark brown with a bit of bubbly off-white head. Aroma has roasty coffee bean, citrus rind and flesh, some herbal/floral character, bit of dark sugar/molasses malts. Flavour has lots of citrus hops, slight pine and mint, along with a roasty coffee/chocolate malt profile with just a little sweetness. Finish had citrus pith and green hop notes, moderately bitter, some roast and a little alcohol heat. Fairly full-bodied with low carb, smooth. Nice integration of roast malts and reasonably bold hops, not quite a black IPA but in the same ballpark. Tasty stuff.

Tap at the brewery early this year, aroma is mix of fruitiness and roasty, taste is pretty full it has a lot going on, it tastes of grainy fruity and a light roast, overall pretty good.

Mega - big and really good. Reminds of a US craft beer. Deep, rich bitter and malt notes in perfect balance but also a big velvety body. With som age this is a 10/10 beer. Love this one.

Pours dark black with tan coloured head that laces the glass perfectly. Has just a faint aroma that is hard to pick up. Taste is mild sweet with a light bitterness.

solidfunk (8640) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Not quite sure how to place this one.kind of a floral bitter beer. Not sure if it quite jumps the shark, if its witchshark we are referring to. Pours very dark with wonderful carpet lacing and creamy head. Smells boozy and floral. Tase is bitter, bordering on astringency without being unpleasant. Adds a grapefruit peel note. Medium to low carbonation. On tap at brewpub.

[4977C-20121129] Cask. Mild fruity note in the aroma but is mostly dark dusty malty fresh grains. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Dark roast chocolate malt flavour has hints of coffee on the edges. Full body. Delicious and very drinkable. (8/4/9/4/17) 4.2

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown with a small frothy off-white head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel or toffee along with light leafy hops and some light sugary sweetness. Flavour is malty along with some alcohol, cocoa and leafy hops. The alcohol is very slightly off-putting. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
