Notes/Commercial Description:
Deep mahogany in color with aromas of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. Subtly hopped, making it astonishingly smooth and easy drinking for such a big beer.

3.6/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint.

Looks more like a porter to me. You can sse light through the beer and the head was gone before it was ever established.

Not much of a nose either. Burnt chocolate maybe a little plum.

There it is! It is a beer after all. Pleasantly suprised after the begining of this beer. It's like a well balanced breakfest of Coco pebbles and OJ.

A little thin. A decent creaminess, but thin.

All in all I would drink it again. In fact Im going to do it right now.

Best by date JUN 30-14
Aggressively poured in to a DHF signature glass.

A: Deep mahogany with a 1 finger tan head. No lacing to speak of. The head acted more like a soda than a Russian Imperial Stout, loudly fizzing away as quickly as it appeared.

S: Slightly metallic, roasted coffee with a hint of ash tray. Reminded me of Dunkin Donuts coffee.

T: Similar to the nose with the addition of dark fruit and stale Coke. Very flat
.
MF: Thin with a dry aftertaste, not encouraging me to take another sip.

O: This beer did not fit the category. It is lacking the weight and complexity or a RIS.
Heavy Seas makes some good beer, but I think they missed the mark with this one or Oskar Blues and Founders set the bar to high. Either way I hope Siren Noire treats me better. I have bottle waiting for me in the fridge.
