Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Mild roasted malt nose. CO2 adds lightness. Rich, toasty malt with a nice coffee finish. Hops not too noticable. Great mouthfeel. Flavorful, coating, but not too heavy. Very nice. Very flavorful, but no distinctive character, IMO. A good beer to have on hand. Worth a try.

This came in a 22oz bomber and was brewed with 8 different malts, 8 different hops and 8% alcohol. This pours out an opaque black with a tall tan head that quickly fell leaving no lace in its demise. Aroma is full of dark chocolate and is a little bit fruity. Taste is a bit sweet with notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt and a slight bit of fruit. There is a good amount of earthiness to it as well and the alcohol pops up once in a while. Body was about medium. Fairly good drinkability, I would have this again. Solid Brew all around.

It seems like a lot of brewers commemorate their anniversaries these days by including an equivalent # of hops, malts, adjuncts, or what have your for whatever year they are celebrating. One has to wonder when they will run out of ingredients! As it stands, 8 malts and 8 hops turns out pretty well. The beer is a rich dark brown color with a frothy beige head that stayed forever. Nice lacing too. The aroma is roasted malt, grain and a little fruit. Medium body with a smooth texture. Lots of toasted malt flavor, along with hops, plum and caramel. The alcohol comes through now and again as well. The finish is malty and warming. Overall this beer was a pleasant surprise that I would try again. Heres to next years 9th!

Pours a deep dark brown color, that is a brilliantly clear ruby tinted color when held up to the light. The head is frothy and a light brown color. The aroma is rich and full of dark malt notes, but it also has a not quite perceptible but a hint of light spiciness reminiscent of cinnamon and all spice. It smells sweet and lightly chocolatey as well. It is actually quite an appealing aroma that is quite a bit different than I was expecting.
The taste is lightly sweet with rich dark fruity notes and a slightly alcoholic finish. This beer is quite interesting, it is not at all what I was expecting. I must admit that I am enjoying this beer. It is a nice cold weather sipper. It is sweet and rich, though perhaps a bit unbalanced in its sweetness, but still I am enjoying it. I get notes of raisin, chocolate, espresso, plum, cinnamon, clove, and allspice.

From a 'bomber' bottle puchased at Bierkraft, Brooklyn. This beer was brewed under contract at Saratoga Springs, NY.
Deep ruby red in colour, appearing black until you hold it up to the light. Small to medium tan head. Big malty aroma. Flavour is wonderfully complex: malt, quite a bit of licorice, hops, it's all there and perfectly balanced. Not too highly carbonated which I find good, just enough for the smooth array of flavours to be enjoyed. Finish is smooth and malty, slightly sweet.
If Jews had Christmas, this could have been described as liquid Christmas pudding. But since they don't, I'll just say this beer is truly outstanding; pity it isn't permanently available...
