Very nice beer pours with Lacey head and aroma of chocolate and licorice. Taste is silky smooth with roasty notes of chocolate and some smoke. Well done

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can from Couch Potato Austin (novel but fantastic idea!) from a 6’er served in shaker- poured a near black with hearty darkened maroon shading when held to a light source, 2 finger plus head formed but quickly went away after some typing, smoking, and thinking. Aroma of various hops, dried dark chocolate, and a fairly roasted malt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt tastes like it was laced with molasses and a fart worth of chocolate- not complaining, just noting- middle has a touch too much sweetness for me, finish is lasting with a little bit of smoke. It’s works for me.

Dark and toasty with a light finish. Not hugely complex but what’s there is fairly tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at BTBF. Pours with a slightly hazy near black hued body with a tan head that lasts. Aromas are roasty, mildly citrusy, spicy, grainy, hop resin, roast and chocolate. Flavors show spicy and floral hops with a mild citrus character. Baked bread, low roast. Very very fresh hop profile. Lively carbonation, medium dry with a long roasty, coffee like finish.

Fair shwartz. Big white head on black body. Aggressive carbonation. Significant acid. Drinkable beer, it grew on me.It was only an extra, thanks Steve in Austin for some fun. Some burning tummy. Good roast aroma. Rough patches.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft poured. Dark almost black with practically no head. Hard to tell the aroma in this glass. Flavors are light roast, chocolate, malt, easy hops on the finish. Goes down smooth and tasty but not remarkable
