12oz bottle picked up this weekend at new glarus... Pours an earthy dirty brown cola pour leaning more towards the brownish side and topped with a creamy light beige head... Solid fresh hop notes in the aroma with juicy citrus and piney for the majority with a touch of roasty malt working its way into the equation but no as prominent. Def fond of the aroma on this one... Chocolate and roast hit first in the flavor and quickly followed by a dank green citrusy profile. Body is somewhat flimsy borderline thin. Carbonation is adequate. Somewhat dry finish. Solid for sure but the aroma on this is more to my liking than what was presented from the flavor. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle shared by STL Will. Pours with a deep brown near black body with a lasting tan head. Aromas are very fruity and citrusy, hop forward, pine, chocolate, estery and grapefruit. Flavors are a bit on the sweet side for me, estery, chocolate, floral, fruit, pine, molasses. Finishes somewhat dry. Lively bubbles, medium bodied.

Poured from 12oz bottle from a trade, pours dirty dark brown with small off white head and nice lacing, aroma has a huge amount of citrus and pine on the nose, the flavor between the grapefruit, spruce/ pine hops and the malt is excellent. Well balanced. It has a lingering hop finish however, light bitterness. Wet, fresh hops. I like that it is mild on the bitterness. As it warms, chocolate malt comes out. Medium body gives it high drinkability. Really well made. I’m glad I have 5 more bottles! SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011

Thanks to GT2 for this one. Black pour with a creamy beige head. Nose holds pink grapefruit, big floral hops, and pine tree. The flavor brings more evergreen presence with increased roast prevalence. Quite good, but not breathtaking.

Tasted in October 2011 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Discount Liquor. Pours muddy dark brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to smooth lace. The nose is pince resin hops, molasses, chocolate malt, and intense citrus peel. The flavor starts off with the citrus up front, moving to the lightly sweet molasses, chocolate malt, and finishing with an intense, but pleasant bitter resin. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long hoppy bitter and chocolate malt finish. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
12 oz bottle. Deep, clear cola brown with a beige head. Nose is pine, grapefruit, orange peel and faint chocolate. Resiny medium body with an airy tingle. Taste is bitter orange pith, burnt pine needles, mocha and molasses but not quite sweet. BeerInHeaven (449) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pours a rich brown with a decent tan head. The aroma is very nice. Strong but pleasant, biscuuity. Great taste. Long finish with pleasant aftertaste. Very good. 48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle. Nice black IPA. Nose and taste very similar with nice balanced hop profile, chocolate malt, and molasses. Light on the palate yet nice body.
