Bottled. A deep red beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit and berries as well as light notes of straw. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks Boboski for trading this to Papsoe.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Dark brown color. Light aroma: roasted malt, coffee, caramel. Quite good body strength, with strong caramel flavor and some roasted malt, light liquorice and coffee, dry at the end and with some sourness from the roasted malt; unfortunately there is a wrong note at the end, something metallic maybe.

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate toasted malt dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark malt flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is the good brew.

12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s Madison West. Pours a very dark red color with a medium tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of big chocolate notes, roasted malts, a milky note and a hoppy finish. The taste is chocolate, tart cherries, roasted malts, bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

crossovert (13742) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
355ml twist off bottle. Pours a dark brown with a long-lasting tan/offwhite head. Nice lacing. The smell is roasty, lighly smoky, some peat, plenty of unsweetened cocoa. The flavor once again brings to mind smoke. It is slightly metallic but nicely peaty with cacao nibs and a sharp bitterness. Nice one.
