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? arminjewell (9646) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
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.

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. 3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2010

Draft at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Deep amber brown with a beige head. Sweet hops in the aroma, with a touch of roasted malt and herbal notes. The flavor has floral hops, pine needles, and finishes with a nice roasty bitterness. Very nice.

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. daniele (9063) - ITALY - NOV 28, 2014
