On-tap in the Rogue bar on Union St, San Fran: 3rd Feb 2013.

49ers had just blown the Super Bowl and I thought this would go down well too!

It did, an off-white crown sat on top of a dark brown body that had a red hue to its look.

Raosted/toasted malts in both the nose and taste: semi-sweet with a more bitter and dry finish, plenty of flavours to pick up within the brew ranging from coffee at the fore through to a mild citrus note towards the end.

Interesting and a good start to six beer mini-session I had that evening.

Served on-tap at Drop Off Service in New York, NY

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown in color (approaching but not quite black) with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation near the surface and some cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that reduces to a couple of small patch of thin bubbles and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts along with light to moderate aromas of pine/resin hops and just a hint of spiciness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of dark roasted and slightly burnt malts that is followed by moderate flavors of pine/resin hops. Moderate to strong amounts of bitterness that linger for a short while.

M: Just heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This one is a bit of a hybrid of a Black IPA and a Winter Warmer which I find a slightly awkward style - it is a little more approachable than a lot of other winter warmer beers as it is less sweet and not as intensely spicy.

On-tap at Drop Off Service, New York, NY

A: The beer is very dark brown (near black when viewed from afar) in color. It poured with a thin off white head that died down, leaving some bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin hops and hints of dark roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is dominated by a moderate to strong aromas of bitterness with notes of pine resin hops and hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels a bit heavier than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little easier to drink compared to other beers in the style and reminds me a little of a Black IPA.

From notes taken last night at Kick-Off in Waterloo, on tap via disposable plastic kegs.

Although not traditional for the winter warmer style, really enjoyed this beer. A winter ale with attitude!

Pours a beautiful dark (blackish) amber with decent head and impressive lacing. Very limited aroma with only the faintest caramelized malts. However an awesome taste, with a bitter profile from start to finish. Resinous pine and pineapple, and a lovely backbone of roasted dark malts with both coffee and dark chocolate tones. Delightfully bitter finish lingers for an impressive length of time.

Not a beer I have seen before, but one I will seek out again whenever possible.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Cloudy brown color with two fingers worth of tan, foamy head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Strong hop aroma with a hint of brown sugar and caramel.

Taste- Piney hop bitterness at the start with some spice and toffee-like flavors blending in toward the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A little too hoppy for the style but drinkable.
