Deep brown pour. Aroma is fruity with caramel, brown sugar. Full bodied, lots of flavour. Syrupy, almost. Some nuts, dark fruits, and caramel in the body. Flavour is quite sweet, but a nice clash between the booze and the sweetness makes for a good finish.
Okay dark beige head and black body (ooh, baby!). Creamy coffee, bailey’s latte, chcolate cake with a subtle and sophisticated touch on the aroma. Flavour is this heavy oily licorice and chocolate syrup, bold and rough, great for sipping. Bit of a wine chocolate liqueur finish. Well done and memorable.

Sucre brun, mélasse, pruneaux, chocolat, notes boisées, peut-être une touche de tabac. Un éventail intéressant de parfums. Un goût fruité liquoreux, riche en malts caramélisés avec un alcool presque camouflé et une poignée de noix. Un corps moyen-fort avec un pétillement présent et une texture un peu collante. Une finale sur des notes de réglisse justement amères. Petite bouteille facilement buvable. Bule (2228) - California, USA - APR 28, 2016
12oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Mildly sweet chocolatey goodness. Nice amount of hops.

A nice dark pour. Thin on nose but still pleasant. Definitely sweetish on the palate and finishes with a slight warmth. Definitely enjoyable but be careful; the 9.5% ABV can sneak up on you as it is not evident in the taste or smell! dslam (103) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from earth 355 ml bottle dark brown beer with minimal head, off white colour. It doesn’t smell that great. Great taste on the first sip and goes down really smooth. Surprisingly good for a light beer that doesnt have enough weight to try and suppress the 9.5% alcohol. ljthiessen (1391) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Opaque dark brown pour, beige head. Aromas of dark fruits, raisins and chocolate. Flavour is fairly sweet with chocolate and some subtle dark fruits, fairly full-bodied with a dry finish. crazy_cat_lady (653) - - AUG 7, 2014
July 20, 2014. Bottle from Kevin’s cellar (thanks Kevin!). Hints of roasted coffee, chocolate. Lovely foamy tan head. Opaque black. Smooth and chocolatey coffee flavour, hints of cherry. Lacking a bit in depth, but still quite nice. kevinsenn (2245) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of toffsbury. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of raisin, coffee, chocolate. Burnt raisin caramel and chocolate flavour. Sticky body. Pretty good.
