MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, - JUN 10, 2010
Poured a clear brown capped with a thin tan head. Aroms was mild (weak?), maybe some malt, but it was not easy to tell. Taste wsa a lot of malt, too sweet to start, but easing off at it progressed; also, there was a hint of "burnt" to go along with the coffee or dark chocolate at the finish. Solid mouth. This got better at the temperature rose.

I liked this ale as it had that twang that I enjoy in the darker stouts and porters. Also love the name as the two wee beers Ive had are excellent.

Cybercat (5391) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours barely translucent sepia with a thin light tan head. Aroma delivers caramel, woody and toasted malt notes. Flavor echoes the aroma, though not as sweet. Mouthfeel has thin body but good fizz. Dont get angry, have a snort.

Bomber. Nice chocolate nose, caramel, touch of smoke. Glowing brown-red color. Malty flavor, some smoke and roast, fudge. bitter, hoppy finish. Very light bodied and a bit too carbonated.
