22 oz bottle

Very dark ruby colored, almost brown. Thick creamy head. Malty aroma - burnt caramel, toffee, rum. Taste is fairly sweet, I'm surprised to see this categorized an American Strong Ale. I'd say Scotch Ale. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel.

On tap in Boise Idaho.
Essentially black but clear body with an excellent tan head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: higher ABV evident along with dark roasted grains.
Flavor follows the aroma, with some booze, dark bread and spicy hops.
Overall: too boozy and hot.

I love this stuff. Smells like alcohol. Tastes like it. But also tastes like a delicious stout. Perfect when you want a Guinness but also want a buzz ;)

Bottle - 22 ounce to wine glass
Appearance: dark brown, with small medium light brown foam
Smell: aroma of malt
Taste: very good, Balance, medium bitterness
Mouth feel: good. Taste is no bold, follow through not long, like something is lacking
Overall: Very good beer, not to repeat nor look for.

Smell : See below.

Taste : Chocolate, mild roast, mild nuttiness, and a bit of coconut.

Feel : Medium carbonation and medium-full body. Slightly sweet upfront, dry finish.

A very light appearance for a dark beer. Mild aroma. A little head. Taste is marginal for a dark beer that has a wide spread following in many restaurants. They need a good beer consultant.

Poured from a can, not as good as a freshly tapped keg, but still surprisingly tasty.
Nice and smooth without any harsh aftertaste for a dark rich ale.
