Dry roasted aroma with a hint of sweetness. Burnt coffee, toffee, and dark pit fruit sweetness. Chocolate is present but subtle. Slight alcohol warming sensation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fakebeersnob (142) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Sampler. Dark brown. Smells very chocolatey. Smooth drinking. Chocolate taste. I was getting a slight sour taste, but thinking the previous beer sample (Soft Parade) so might need to re-review.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pretty dark blackish pour here, with 1-finger tan head. Aroma is heavy chocoff, chocolate malt, slight molasses. MEdium palate, which gets a tad lighter as it warms, with flavor notes of chocolate malt, dark chocolate syrup, ovaltine, and coffee

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Sample at the brewpub on 3/29/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of butter, chocolate and quasi-Belgian esters. Malty and buttery flavor with chocolate and roast before a funky finish.

Dark black color with a medium tan head. Chocolate coffee nose.smooth, but lacking in carbonation. Burnt grains. Nice beer, but missing something.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2013
Backlog rating 12-31-2008 (Bottle shared by patrick767 at Fort Wayne RB Gathering) This beer pours a tan medium sized fizzy head that mostly diminished, floaties, one ring of lacing, opaque body, and a dark brown hue. The Aroma is roasty, burnt, malty, semi-sweet, and chocolate. The Flavor mimics the Aroma. The Palate is fairly smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. All-in-all, this beer is quaffable and has a nice balance between the Aroma and the Flavor.
