Cask at Big Hunt. Great brown flavor with a good bit of alcohol. The cocoa makes it bitter but in the right way and the vanilla adds some sweetness.

On cask. Aroma of dark chocolate. Thin soda like head and mouth feel. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla and spice. Marvelous!

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Cask. Pours deep, dark brown with thin, fizzy tan head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted and caramel malts, plums, raisins, vanilla, chocolate, and light woody notes. Flavor is heavy chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, light toffee, earthy hops, and dark fruit; dry finish. Medium/full body and low carbonation.

dbarnold (1125) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pitch Black, barely carbonated. Essentially a chocolate and vanilla bomb that manages to keep sweetness to a manageable level. Long lingering finish. Would serve as a great after dinner drink.

Iphonephan (2657) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2012
On cask at church key in DC. Pours black with a large bubble tan head. Cheesy chocolate aroma. Chocolate dominates the flavor. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Lingering mild bitter finish.

Growler from the source. Hazy maroon brown color, scant head. Aroma of dark milk chocolate. Taste is vanilla, cocoa, slight booze. Very nice.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Growler thanks to Travlr. Pours a full haze deep mahogany. Bubbles, no head formation. Nose is rich hazelnut and vanilla coffee, mill chocolate, earthy spice. Taste is richer hazelnut, some rum raisin, coffee. Palate is thinner, a bit chalky/papery. Nice stuff. Some black cherry liquor.
