COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Stout, full-bodied, roasted, and highly hopped.
Each dawn is clear. Cold air bites the throat. Thick frost on the pine bough. Leaps from the tree snapped by the diesel. On the darkest days of the year, light becomes a luxury. Just when you think you cannot penetrate the darkness... SNAP! Light pierces through the roasted pine forest.

omhper (25565) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2012
Canned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black, rich beige head. Tarry licorice aroma. Mid sweet with dense solid body and rounded moiuthfeel. Tar and licorice dominates until resiny bitterness takes over. A heavily hopped, aggressive stout.

Leighton (22055) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at Barcade. An above average stout. Pours a charming black with a thick, voluminous tan head. Aroma of well roasted malts and coffee. Flavor packs more of the same. Burnt malts and some smokiness. Hops are detectable in the tail. Full bodied and creamy, this beer is a smooth drink.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
On tap at Tin Bucket, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out fairly harsh burnt roasted malt, with fairly aggressive hopping. Flavour is along the same lines, with burnt roasted malt dominating, along with bitter piney hops on the underside. Nicely constructed - tastes better than it smells. Very good.

Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2008 More or less black in colour. Well, a little less but not enough to quibble. Roasty, plummy, deeply chocolatey aroma. Chewy dark malts - roasty, chocolatey. Well-defined flavours with only a hint of fruitiness. A lot of hoppy dryness in the finish. Quality.

3.8
bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Can from Half Time. Pours brown/black with a dark tan head. Aroma comes across as resin. And smooth burnt malt. Med body or nearly so. Flavor starts as hop, then more hop, then a slightly ashy smooth burnt malt. It is quite hoppy and bitter. Excellent ale.

3.7
djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is smoke, caramel, and pine. Medium mouth, nice roast, light smoke, bitter finish, very good.

3.6
Ratman197 (15220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2013
16 oz can courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roastiness, charcoal, pine, earthiness and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, pine and light earthiness with a crisp dry bitter lingering roasty pine finish.

3.4
DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of hops, a bit piney and resinous, roastiness and coffee. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee beans, a bit "green", and nice hops bitterness, a bit resinous. Medium-bodied.
