12oz bottle - enjoy by nov 2012

More of a dark mahogany than black. 2 finger tan head that dissipates down to a frothy 2cm that laces the glass. Smell is chocolate, malt, and hops. Well balanced and inviting. Taste has the same malt and chocolate as the nose, but the bitter hops dominate- and not in a good way. It numbs the tongue and goes flat.

Worth a try, but something I won't revisit.

On tap at Mccooles.

A- Deep copper color with red hues. This looks a bit like a lager. Off white, slight brown head.

S- I'm left searching a bit here. Hints of hops, and strong carmel roast malt. More of a malt profile in the nose. But the hops are somewhat weak.

T- Starts as a chocolate roasty malt sweetness. Flavor then transitions into a fruity hop profile. Mostly citrus and orange. Then it rounds out with a milky creamy taste.

M- Medium to full bodied brew with medium carbonation. Mouth is up and down. Starts out smooth and rich, then a tingly bitterness, and then smooths out again. Pretty interesting.

O- Definitely an interesting brew. I like the combo here in the taste, but the nose was a bit of a let down.

Pour was a dark ruddy brown with two fingers of light beige head. Good amount of lacing. Nose was powerful citrusy hops, floral bouquet, malt, and a bit of pine. Taste was strong hops, but the malt and citrus mellowed the burst. Very drinkable with nice palate.

Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy amber color with a peculiar tan foam, not particularly aberrant, but pleasing.

S: Smell is faintly hoppy with pine and citrus notes but, more notably, is sweet with orange citrus and white grape juice and supporting maltiness.

T/M: Medium to high carbonation cover the tongue in bubbles and lead to a refreshing earthy, citrus hoppiness. More faint orange fruit accompanies a slightly bitter citrus zest hoppiness while light malt attempts to balance out the profile. Hints of plum and some graininess are reminiscent of a red ale, albeit a hoppy one.

This is a bright flavor for something so seemingly dark.

Reviewed from session notes.

Pours out a dark brown with ruby highlights and a very short-lived collar for a head, minimal lacing. Aroma consists firstly of heavy tropical fruit: Mango, pineapple, and papaya. Medium roasted malt aroma with excellent char / sweet dichotomy in the flavor profile. Minor nutty character appears as well as the glass warms up. Pine resin and grapefruit peel maintain a constant presence throughout. Carbonation levels are slightly low, medium-thick body with a certain interesting level of slick oiliness.
