I stumbled upon this in the Costco booze section for less than $5 for a dos-dos. I was very pleasantly surprised. Very tasty Dark Ale? It is in its own category. Dark but kinda light, a little malt but still light, sweet, a little hoppy, caramels and did I mention sweet. For the ABV, it' really hides it well. I'd drink this any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Give it a shot, you'll like it.

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.

22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color, with two fingers of oatmeal-colored head that quickly dissolved away into an extremely thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic with lots of earthy, bready, roasted malt, which imparts notes of toasted dark bread, dark molasses and hits of dark chocolate. I also get notes of brown sugar, a hint of clove and cinnamon, and a touch of floral, grassy hops. Very inviting.

Taste: Wow! Very nice, very tasty beer! Lots of toasted and roasted malt up front, followed by some dark molasses and brown sugar-like sweetness, a touch of dark chocolate, a touch of cinnamon and clove, and a touch of smoke. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very, very smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a really good, really tasty beer. Malty, roasty, toasty, slightly sweet, slightly savory, and very smooth. Delicious! Recommended!

A: A very dark brown ale. Leaves a lot of tracing on the glass. I got plenty of gold colored head that lasted longer than I expected.

S Decent chocolate and caramel. Not overpowering, but it's there and is good.

T This beer hit the spot for me. Lots of malt, coffee, and caramel in the mix, and a nice sweet touch that kept me coming back for more. Notes of dark fruit in the background. If I didn't know the alcohol content before hand, I'd never have guessed how much was there until after trying to stand up.

M Not too thick (this is an ale, not a stout), but plenty of body. Quite satisfying.

O If there was ever a reason for me to want to live in the Northwest, this beer is it. One of the best comfort ales I have run across. Yum!!

Very smooth, malt heavy ale. Had in 22 oz bottle. Not any extra flavors, just really tasty heavy beer!
