A monster indeed. Thick, full-bodied beer. Strong roasted malt, but also with some hops. Very good. jbruner (5026) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Pours a deep black from a growler with minimal head or lace. Aroma of sweet chocolate and big fruity sweetness. Tasteis more roasty than the nose, but still nice chocolate and fruity esters. Thin, but still viscous, really nice. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 21, 2014

23-JUL-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Black with dark brown, lasting head.
Roasted aroma with prunes and soy. Taste the same but better.
Sweet but with a touch of bitterness.
Full body and soft carbonation. Often Westbrook beers have been overcarbonated but this is wonderfull. Palme (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a black one. Yeah, really black actually and the nice lady who poured this to me gave it a medium sized brown top that looks like a million bucks. . The aroma has tones of ashtray and heavy roasted almost burned malts. Some lactose and a milky sweetness shines through with milk chocolate and more roasted things. Great taste also. No doubt that this has been in contact with wood, so much is clear, and it’s not directly sweet but it has a milky chocolaty sweetness to it. Lots if roasted stuff going on here. Some nice sweet biscuits in the roasted finish. A really tasty one. 03.05.2013

dark brown, thin tan ring. Stale cardboard nose, faint oats and sugar with strawberry hints. Flavor is fresher, more sugar, chocolate, cardboard comes through in end. Too old, profile can’t alleviate.
