3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Paddle @ Mellow Mushroom. Dark frothy pour. Syrupy, sweet aroma balanced with porter like malt. Strong ale-like body with brett tones in a porter? Enjoyed this brew immensely, however. Thomas Creek creates some quality quaffable products.

From tap at ADT. Clear reddish-brown with minimal head. Chocolate, roasty nose. Flavors are rich cocoa, burnt sugar, sweet roast malt. Luscious finish with some alcohol warmth. Really nice. drfabulous (7952) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2016

Not much to add on the other comments. On tap at Pinocchios. Boozy nose. Boozy dark fruits with hints of cocoa and a bit of yeastiness. Good but not great. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016

3/26/16. Technically. To me, I guess it’s still 3/25, so to speak, but it’s jussssst barely past midnight, so 3/26. I guess. I dunno. I’m pissed about this beer before I even got to try it. Why oh why do breweries cork and cage?! WHY?! This one was such a pain in the ass myself and Mrs. Owl couldn’t get it open. If you volunteer to help bottle at a release like this and you twist it so much nobody can open it then fuck you. FUCK. YOU. I had to get pliers to twist open the cage and it was so tightly wound that by the time I got it open the cage was stripped of all paint/coating/whatever and it never fully opened - the damn thing just broke apart. This is almost as bad as double wax dipped beers. So stupid. Black pour, small khaki head, mild lacing. Fruity aroma, dark fruits, mild acidity, coffee, caramel. Lightly tart flavor, acidic, coffee, chocolate, seltzer water, caramel. Weird beer. Way too hard to open for a beer that doesn’t deliver. Nejhleader (1561) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Faint chocolate aroma. Taste is a nice chocolate with some molasses. Body a tad thin, but hides alcohol well. A good beer. katrinaez (2024) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Really light on the scent. Thick gritty feel. Coffee and chalky malt that is rich and wonderful. Great porter example. Translucent black. Tap Travlr (24930) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Draft. Dark clear maroon brown. Subtle riasty aroma. Taste has roasty raw brownie dough. aracauna (3609) - Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Slight soy behind the chocolate aroma. Surprisingly vinous. Is this wine barrel aged?
