3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured two fingers of head on a black body. Looks nice.
The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and a little coffee. Pretty good except for a slight metallic note.
The taste is watered down roasted malt with metallic undertones. There’s a mild bitterness at the end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An easy drinker. The metallic notes took some points away, but not good overall.
Pretty black it tis. Not seeing light through it. Good frothy head of foam with lacing.
Roasty with dark chocolate and a strange other bitter smell.
Roasted malt with bitter chocolate, hints of fruit when I swish the beer in my mouth. Again, there’s something going on with that bitterness that’s off putting to me me.
Good brew of the style to get me a Black and Tan style entry. Not something I would bother to buy again. jehoesefat (366) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Smells a little sour. Pours translucent ruby with a thin head. Taste is bitter without much depth. slowrunner77 (12144) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"i guess it’s gotta be classed somewhere...1/2 stout, 1.2 eye of the hawk "select" ale. nice mixture, almost but not quite as good as the stout alone. like a dark lager in flavor and body." gyllenbock (9313) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Sample at SF Beer Week Opening Gala 2014.
Dark reddish/brown with a medium head. Aroma of light roasted malt, coffee and some fruit. Nothing special with this one.

Pours dark brown with a foamy white head. Nose is very aromatic; heavy dark grain notes, caramel, cola. Taste is right on the line between sweet malt and hoppy bitterness. Medium body; lively carbonation. Quite good brew!

Drink it often when in the sticks of NorCal. One of their more full flavored beers. coreyc1221 (319) - Truckee, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Really carmel and coffee aroma with a tan, almost brown head. Dark dark brown color. The taste is nuttty vanilla with creamy smooth after taste. This is quite delish-kiestro. I think it would go best with a chocolate based dessert. The best black eye I’ve ever gotten. fr0ztbyte (12) - - AUG 5, 2012
A very smooth Black & Tan type beer. Very easy to drink with a great roasted after taste. The flavor isn’t typical of blended beers but, it retains interest. Also, a nutty aroma that’s pleasing even to girls. Happy International Beer Day!
