hawthorne00 (3605) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle, 6.2% ABV. Dark reddish brown with a large off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma of chocolate and toffee, some piney and herbal touches that jar slightly. Sweet with some chocolate and lots of fairly plain toffee. Fairly high bitterness chokes off the sweetness OK, but undermines the soothing quality of the maltiness that comes before. Not that thats all that interesting for the strength. Caught between two stools for me - neither bland but harmonious nor quite breaking away.

Pours copper with a fading head. Nose shows bready, toasty malt and some soft earthy coffee. Similar flavours with hints of smoke amidst toasty and bready malt.

Good to see the Pacific Northwest Brewers branching out into other European styles.

Tap at Pelican Brewing in Tillamook. Pours clear brown with red hues and off-white head. Aroma is extreme caramel, chocolate, sweet malts. Taste is very chocolate, bitter, a lil dirty barley. Overall, decent.

Pdubyah (659) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 17, 2014
(bottle) What a surprise! A big punch of roasted malts and a lovely hot of green hoppyness in this that makes it from the first mouthful a bit of a pleasant experience. Unfortunately the bottle I have was right at the edge of its "enjoy by" date. I sit here thinking that the fresh version must be a real eye-popper of a drink.

jsnicholas (530) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle (22oz $5): pours a clear ruby brown with one finger light tan head. I got very little aroma. Tasted is subtle toasted malt with slight bitterness. Body is between light and medium as is carbonation. Very drinkable and relatively inexpensive. Could be a regular, but wish they had them in 12oz.

Subdued aroma is followed by an enjoyable sour-malt flavour and subtle bitter finish. A good example of the style.
