12 oz bottle into a pint glass Pours a clear dark brown with some tan foam. Caramel and lightly burnt malts with faint little floral notes. Certainly not bad but I relegated the end of my six pack for cooking purposes. BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2014

Bottle @ home, picked up in North Carolina. Pours a dark copper orange appearance with a big fluffy brown head. Twangy red fruity, citrusy nose. Some caramel and nutty elements. Kind of strange fruity aroma. Fairly bitter, nutty herbal flavor with a serious twanginess. Quite bitter. Moderate sweetness. Twangy finish. Not sure what is going on here.

Bottle. Really nice deep brown color. Aroma was roasted grains with hints of burnt toast. The taste was the issue. The bitterness of the almost burnt malts with the bitterness of the hops was just a little much. If one is looking for a bitter dark beer then this is for you. klk343 (162) - - MAR 18, 2014
A very dark amber color with a thick off white head. A sweet smelling beer with a thick consistency. A bitter, coffee taste. rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 18, 2014
@ Greens Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Clear dark ruby brown with a thick head cover, thin stripes of lace. Taste is mild caramel malt that grows bitter as it moves through the palate, adding carbonation fizz in the finish. Pretty simple brew. conway (2210) - - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a 2 finger tan head. Earthy roasty aroma. Taste follows suit with a hint of cherry like sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Solid. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Tasted on 2/27/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods. Pours deep amber, just letting a bit of fiery light through, with a huge, rocky beige head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is some nutty cocoa nib malt with a nice dose of spicy and green hops bitterness, and just a touch of fruity esters. The flavor is on the lighter side with the spicy and bitter hops coming through nicely and even a bit more fruitiness than on the nose. The body is medium with very lively carbonation and a long spicy hops and lightly nutty/fruity finish.
