A pretty fun, big black’un. Such a dark brown, almost purple, with a huge tawny bonnet. Beautiful, really. Smell is a bit boozy, but in the whiskey, warming way, not astringent. Also lots of dark fruitcake, raisins, smoke, cocoa, a bit of coffee and leather. Tasted the same to me and had a nice boozy, vanilla latte and fruitcake finish. Somewhat syrupy texture but really quite a nice RIS.

On draft at Bakehouse in Manhattan. Beautiful pour. Gets even better as it warms up.

Malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread and chocolate Very Dark with impressive head that diminishes with first sip Medium bitters with a burnt salty punch Full body thick flavor with average carbonation with a bit of an astringent finish A very hearty beer I would think best with a meal with strong flavors

Pours very dark with very little head. Aroma of malts and dark fruits. Taste is complex and rich, of licorice and dark coffee. Well blended and drinkable, thumbs up on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Black with a nice brown head, a bit creamy. Aroma of dark chocolate, mocha, some liqueur and a bit of dark fruits. Flavor of lots of chocolate with some berries/cherries, some caramel, a nutty note and a drier and slightly burnt finish. Full-bodied. Great stuff.

IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - APR 7, 2014
A wonderful surprise find on base, thank you ordering clerks at the Navy Exchange! Great looking beer, motor oil with a short lived small reddish/brown head. Loads of malt, baking cocoa and prunes in the nose. Sweet & malty with floral hints and a slow forming, yet lingering bitter finish. Some alcohol but it is well masked. This is a solid RIS, I am impressed!

I can’t give anything a perfect score but this was close. Poured from a bottle. So dark I can’t see the other side of the glass. Strong enough to help me relax and enjoy my evening.
