12 ounce bottle- Pours out a beautiful translucent mahogany with a stout-like head, thick, khaki and long lasting. The aroma was caramel and toffee with notes of malt. Palate was absolutely perfect, scoring a 5.0, mouth filling and incredibly smooth. Taste was sweet, sweet, sweet, with caramel and dark berries. This would make a perfect desert beer with hot pecan pie. Thanks, Todd, a good addition to the fridge.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep burgundy. Lightish body, but it has a chalky and syrupy base that’s solid. Richly roasted and chocolaty, with a pinch of sourness. Toasty bitterness. Light notes of coffee in the background. Dark, without being too dark, if you will. Rather drinkable.

From a bottle. Faint roasted aroma, very dark brown with minimal head, very fruity with a little bitterness. It’s quite good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought 3 bottles poured them all (one at a time) into a pint glass. Nice dark color, couple fingers of tan head. Tastes malty but not really sweet, which is good. Easy drinking, nice buzz after 3.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and toffee. Taste is medium rich malts with slight bitterness. Not overly deep flavors. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Surprisingly smooth flavor on the front end with chocolatey and nutty aroma. Creamy thick head and dark chocolate in color. You can taste the chocolate and caramel notes and the finish is slightly tart.
