superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/31/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, cocoa, coffee, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, cocoa, coffee, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, light raisin/plum, herbal, and yeast/roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice English dark mild ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.8
hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 11-03-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a large ivory head with a long retention, transparent reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character, flavor and taste bland.

BassMan49 (8) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 2, 2015 does not count
This beer is just okay for me. The aroma was roasty really nothing special. I was okay to drink after I got off work a 2nd shift getting home at about 11 pm. Didn’t really make me want more than one. I probably would not buy it again.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a thick off white head. Aroma is cocoa and dark fruit. Taste becomes nothing but weirdly bitter dark fruit. Thin. Not enjoyable.
