On draught during Darkness Day 2011 in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thick and creamy beige head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of spicy and piney hops, a hint of black malt and a touch of tangerine. Taste is medium bodied, mild black ale character with flavors of light tangerine, grapefruit zest and roasted dark malt. Finish has a mild bitterness, soft palette with some roasted black malt aftertaste. An easy drinking Black Ale with a short lived mild bitterness.

Tap at Darkness Day 2011. Very dark brown pour that left some lacing on the glass. Aroma was floral/citrus hops and roast. Taste was roasty with a pine hop kick. Really good stuff. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Had this at Darkness day, poured a nice dark brown color. Had a nice hoppy/malty flavor, outshined by Darkness though. burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2013
This was a great black ale. Not overly hopped like most black ales. This is very drinkable and enjoyable!

On tap, black with an off white head. Aroma of citrus hops with hints of pine, coffee, and dark malta. Taste was decent, nothing really stood out as being dominant in the flavor profile with a bitter hop finish. Good brew overall. csaso (2315) - Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Cask (dry hopped with Glacier) - big creamy head, pitch black color, piney hop aroma and flavor with a good shot or roasted malt backbone, mild citrusy notes too - very good overall
