T-Really dry and aspirin-like bitterness and roasted upfront and a slight roast finish.

M-Very thin and dry with moderate carbonation.

D-This one is really not my thing and I'm about to drain-pour it; did not enjoy this one after I got past the nose.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live. Expectations are not high.

A- Half a finger white head. Almost zero retention. No real lacing to talk about. Very dark brown, almost black color. Not impressive.

S- Weird smell.I definitely pick up some toasted malts, but there is a very strange almost hotdog like smell.

T- Best part of this beer so far. Very light bodied in flavor, but some roast malts kick in. Average.

M- Light bodied, but smooth. Fizzy carbonation.

O- Probably wouldn't pick up again. The negatives are too strong over the positives.

I poured this weak brew into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was black as specified and poured a very chocolaty head. The beer also had good lacing. I thought this beer was going to be a hit, but like with other organic brews it was not. The beer was pretty tasteless and watery. It had a weak smokey character but without any ass end it just could not make the cut. I will not buy again.

Haven't seen this before and have been big on the light-in-body, dark-in-color beers of late, so I figured I'd give it a go.

Appearance: beautiful dark cola color, abundant creamy tan head, wonderful lacing.

Smell: smells like a wet dog. I literally cannot smell anything else. Suddenly not excited to drink this beer.

Taste: not a lot of flavor, but notes of caramel malt come through. when drinking it, I still smell the wet dog, so that's a downside.

Mouthfeel: really very nice; full and creamy, excellent carbonation.

Overall: a wonderfully crafted beer that smells awful and doesn't taste like much. In no rush to try this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Lovely big foam on a black-brown beer. Starts out with some dark malt but quickly turns sourish, like it's well dosed with Black Patent malt. The slightest hint of sweetness, and not much malt in the body. The touch of dirty hops takes over, though it's not very bitter. More of a dishwater aftertaste.

Austere without being very hoppy, dry with a hint of cardboard. It's not actually bad, but seems to be a cleanly-made example of a "why bother" style. Label claims "organic," and I am still looking for a drinkable "organic" beer. Thanks to Harmon's supermarket for selling singles.

So dark you could hide a black sheep in it. A mound of foam tapers over the top of my glass. Roasted chocolate malts, and sweet taro root build a tasty nose. The flavor is that of an incredibly basic stout. Maltiness is dark and delicious, hint of coffee, cocoa and caramel as well. Light body, medium fizz to it.

Overall it seems like the marketing males this beer more than the beer itself. Cute labeling, special bottle, and USDA Organic slapped on it make it stick out yet it yields something akin to Canadian made Guinness.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Pours out a cola color with 2 fingers of tan head. A few lines of lacing stuck to the glass.

S: Mild smell of coffee and roasted malt.

T: Similar to the smell. Not really robust. Kind of a milky acidic flavor left on the finish.

M: Medium body that is creamy with a fairly light carbonation.

O: A pretty good session beer, but when you are paying top dollar from microbreweries, it is hard to justify buying a beer that is lacking a fuller flavor profile.
