3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good. Taste of chocolate and malt immediately explodes in your mouth. Smells of malt, a little bot of cinnamon. Some coffee in there somewhere.
Bottle... Pours murky and dark brown with a fleeting, gray head. The aroma is a collection of chocolate crème, spice-rack clove and vanilla flanked by traces of cinnamon and toasted coconut. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of deep-roast and a scanty ration of cinnamon. Burnt malts and minerals in the finish.

Hazy light brown. Nice sandy ringed head. Red vinegar, clove and very soft coconut in the background. Odd bitterness, weird green veg times. Clingy enough mouthfeel, soft gritty coppery tinny. Crackling and greasy finish.GlasgowTAD (2007) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle, Thanks Dina... I think, TAD Tasting.
Pours a dark brown colour with a bubbly brown head. Aroma is sweet potato, cardamom and cinnamon. Taste is cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and slight sweet potato. BenH (3431) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle thanks to Dina and Max. Aroma is full of spices, cinamon and clove stand out. Taste is similar but less bizonkers, spices and stuff. Little thin. Stuu666 (15248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015

I can appreciate what they tried to do here, though this is not my favorite Pipeworks beer by a longshot. Has some nice coconut, sweet and slightly tart darkfruit, and some brown sugar / caramel. GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2014
Pours black with no head. Nose of coconut, sweet potato, and chocolate. Molasses, coconut, chocolate, alcohol, berries, burnt marshmallows in the flavor. Low carbonation and full body. Smooth. Pretty good. Very sweet. It gets better as it warms. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Black pour from bomber at Lakehouse. White head. Coconut aroma is intense. Cocoa and I guess I can taste the potatoes. A very sweet beer. Desert like. Not bad Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Slightly potatoe flavored to start with some chocolate notes. Nicely hopped and somewhat bitter. Had this one at beer temple.

Bottle shared by Beerpig317. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, spice and coconut aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt, spice and coconut sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex brew.
