11/19...pours very dark brown with deep offwhite foam, speckled with tiny brown dots. Robust nutty nose, buried sweet honey too. Sweet bready malty caramel, open, smooth and mellow with a honey sweetness all over it. Quite nutty. Lingering sweetness, subtle alcohol.

DATE TASTED: December 8, 2013... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick...OCCASION: preemptive drinking of the first delayed opening of this school year... APPEARANCE: jet black body; thick, spongy, brown head... AROMA: sweet honey with nutty, funky tones; toasted malts suggest the farmlands which the beer seeks to celebrate; some light hops... PALATE: BIG, full-bodied,, cold-storm warming presence; the opposite of the thin, iced tea consistency akin to the usual brown ale...TASTE: somewhat sweet, honeyed start; fleeting oat and grain late; in between. rather clean and brown--some vanilla hints as well--and then the nuttiness takes over and the beer really becomes chewy;overall, a complex beer to chew and swallow...OVERALL: supporting the locals always feels right, and though this bomber requires excess cash--don't most of them?--the taste matches the altruism of giving; big, bold and flavorful, it's what a brown with attitude should produce...

Exit 8 pours a blackish color with a small lacing head. Their is a yeasty sweet aroma. The taste has a nice roasted malty backbone, with nice notes of hazelnuts, and honey, and bits of Belgian candies. Nice full flavor, very drinkable. Overall a very good and unique strong dark ale.
