A - Very dark brown to black in body. Moderate khaki head on pour. Head recedes moderately quick. Lacing looks good.

S - Milk chocolate and fruity esters up front. Slight alcohol smell at the beginning as well. Roast and a slight astringent smell in the middle to end.

T - Lots of roast and chocolate up front. Moderate amount of dark fruit in the beginning to the middle as well. Finishes slightly boozy.

M - Medium bodied. Slight alcohol warming sensation, carbonation is nice.

O - A very drinkable beer. I think the roast and the chocolate can be increased a bit, and a thicker body would be nice as well. Overall pretty good though.

Ok got the 10oz pour at jupiter. My first time here at Jupiter. Found it via bart and beer. http://beerbybart.com/why/jupiter-berkeley-station/

Color- Black with zero light making it through. The head is milk choacolate cream. It is a real thing of beauty. Seriously it looks amazing.

So smell is not that strong. Granted the two dudes next to me had a huge plate of jupiter's garlic bread.

So taste is malty with a hint of choacolate. I ma having a hard time really describing it but it is great.

Mouthful is smooth, smooth as butter....It is way to easy to drink this thing of beauty.

So now I am a little pissed I don't have access to this beer in Boise.

Tasted by a half-pint at the (former) Cask & Cutler, Sheffield, served with a non-sparkler pour.

A: extremely dark brown in colour, with a faint caramely glow when seen against light; a tan-hued foamy-spongy head holds up really well (for a non-sparkler-poured ale).
S: rather fruity on top of the usual (light) roasted malts, with loads of nuttiness to follow... some nectar-ish syrupy touch is also detected. Overall, the aroma is FULL, simple, and nice.
T: the nearly full-bodied black/coffee-ish malts support the initial smooth taste of roast nuttiness... the flavour lingers and stays intact rather than evolves over time, then leading towards a soothing bitter dry-ish palate with an occasional "spicy" intervention... the palate is chewy in the end as well, but overall the long bitterness is rather settled and laced with a "lovely" (hard-to-describe) hop flavour/aroma.
M&D: having tried only two Salamander's ales, I have to say I've already been converted - this one is a very refreshing and balanced smooth stout, showing a critical level of bitterness that balances off as well as benefits from the sound sourness from roast barleys.
