Bottle. The pour was a dark murky brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown head that receded into a few puddles of residue that produced some good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a mild resin hop and an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses and a hint of toffee.
The taste was lightly sweet and superbly malty with notes of chocolate and molasses from the start with the finish having a mild hoppy taste and a nice dose of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted a nice long time letting the malty coffee flavor which had a hint of hoppiness, settle in.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with the texture being rather creamy and having a mild carbonation.
Overall a bold, robust, full tasting brew that had just a light hint of hops which offset everything rather nicely.

Interesting beer. Aroma eerily of a double. Tastes of a watered down IPA/Stout combo, although somewhat refreshing and lively. Finish is almost sweet like a double. Weird.

Consumed a long time ago when I first entered into the beer stratosphere. I can’t say it was my favorite even back then.

Pours clear mahogany with red highlights and a long lasting khaki head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a little coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor is rich roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Drinks almost like a stout. Light- Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, long finish. Very, very good beer with no surprises. Par for the course.
