Pours dark brownish black with off white head, aroma has big pine notes to compliment the chocolate and roast present. Taste is simple, but delicious with notes of pine, some resin and citrus leading into sweet caramel, chocolate, finishing roasted and bitter.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Cask at David Copperfields. Creamy brown beer with a thick tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy and herbal. Spicy with a soft cocoa base and a bit of orange peel. Very bright and hop-laden. Spicy and herbal with a lot of pithy resinous bitterness and a kiss of smokiness as well. Warming intensifies the zesty hoppiness and a spiciness. Sticky resinous finish. A hit of cocoa and light caramel gives the malts a bit of intrigue. Pretty interesting.

12 ounce bottle shared by Eric. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy beige head. A mellow hop aroma, sweet and citrusy, light caramel. A great flavor; bitter and aggressive hops, sweet caramel and toasted malts, a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, extremely drinkable.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pours copper with thin white head. The mild aroma is a mix of earthy and spicy hops with some mild sweetness around the edges. The taste is fresh crisp citrus and spicy hops. Actually there are lots and lots of tasty hops here supported by a tenuously thin layer of malty sweetness.

onceblind (8211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Clear ruby dark brown, with a small head that got smaller still, faded into a thin spotty cap. Great lace though. Big malty aroma of sticky caramel, cocoa powder, a hint of coffee, brown cereal malt like a Dubbel, with some ripe dark fruit like a barleywine. Interesting aroma. Palate is a little sharp, but otherwise near perfect with a great big body. Big malty start of pretzel bread, roasted toffee, and dark malt, but gets hoppier as it ends. Around the middle the floral grassy hops shine through, and ends on a dryish bitter hop note, while some dark ripe fruit tones linger around. Interesting brew, and not bad to sip. Just a little messy, it feels like. Maybe just too harsh or alcoholic?
