Strykzone (7054) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2011
Mahogany color with a nice one finger tan head that soon becomes a ring. I smell yeast and light chocolate and it is akin to a porter. The flavor also begins like a porter, albeit a well hopped one. Soon the hops move to the forefront. Grapefruit tartness and bitterness take over the flavor and also defines the aftertaste. There is some spiciness at the finish. This is a nice beer and the last few Magic Hat offerings I have tried have been so. After some very questionable beers previously, this is a very good direction.

piscator34 (2386) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011
Bottled sample. Muddy dark brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of wood embers, white grapefruit, leafy hops, and powdered chocolate. The charred elements are very forward in the mouth, with notes of coal, burnt coffee, and chocolate mixing with some less assertive c-hop notes. Medium bodied, bitter, and slightly astringent on the finish with all of the roasted malt. Drying and lingering, but still fairly drinkable.

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with a fair amount of head. Malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear iced tea brown with a creamy cap of khaki head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up sweet, candied chocolate and biscuity malts with accents of earth, citrus, and piney hoppage.. not bad, but nothing really popped or was interesting. The flavor found dry-roasted black patent and much less specialty malt (chocolate showed more than anything else) at the core.. dry earthy bitterness surrounded, and a blend of miscellaneous bitterness joined black patent and bakers chocolate on the finish.. balance was decent. Light-medium bodied with OK feel and flow on the palate.. not a great beer by any standards, but it was serviceable.

pinkzambia (1928) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle: Murky dark brown with a frothy tan head that stays around for most of the drink with patches of sticky lacing as well. The aroma is hops, sulfur and eggs. The flavor is not as hoppy as you would hope for and the body is pretty thin with kind of a sweet, watery aftertaste. I wanted to be impressed, but found this beer lacking.

rocbyter (2103) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Moderate citrus hop aroma with light malt. Brown color with a medium tan head. Light bitter beginning that fades in the finish.

jandd1983 (4069) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Sampler at the W&C in Ballwin, Mo. It poured a black color with an off-white head. The aroma was of grain, oats, cocoa powder, hops and minor pine. The flavor was earthy hop bitterness. Not a bad brew.

halfonit (1341) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Pours a black color (which is to be expected). Aroma is full of hops up front with some malts, and grapefruit. Flavor has the hops and grapefruit mostly present with a little chocolate. Not too bad.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2011
The aroma is piny and earthy with a touch of smoke to go along with the toasted malt and caramel. The appearance is dark red brown with a small er tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is a bit thin but well carbonated. I think this is a bit disappointing even though its not a bad beer. The color is a bit light and the overall aroma lacking in punch.

guzzler67 (1677) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Nice size beige head with very good lacing over the cloudy, dark brown body. Aroma is roasted malt, coffeed and herbal hops. Earthy flavors with the roasted malts in the forefront and spicy, resinous hops following through to the aftertaste. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.
