hopscotch (9380) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Growler... This beer rocks!… Pours clear and nearly black with a miniscule, creamy, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma offers big-time mocha accentuated by toasted nuts and vanilla. Full-bodied and fatty with modest carbonation. The bittersweet flavor is of dark chocolate chips and fudge with a deeply-roasted black malt and espresso finish. Huge thanks to BBB63 for shipping this world class delight my way!

Buffalo Trace barrel version, out of a glsss bullet into a snifter.Small dark brown diminishing head, with good lacing.Dark roast coffee&dark chocolate, hint of molasses and prune.Thin to medium mouthfeel, slightly alcoholic,average to soft carbonation. The alcohol fell off along with the bitterness once it warmed up. A good beer once it warmed, not so good cold.

Tmoney99 (10965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Tap Sample. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Tap flight at the brewery. Dense black pour, seemingly still in the glass. Mk chocolate head reduces to a ring. Semisweet chocolate and French roast coffee aroma. Taste is pretty nice. Sweet coffee, chocolate, char, and a combined bitterness from roast and hops. A touch light bodied for the style but not necessarily lacking. Thin but slippery on the tongue. Deceptively strong. Nice.

32 oz growler to oversized snifter (thanks jmborggren!). Looks good a mostly opaque dark cola/borderline black with off-white lacing. Smells good too; LOTS of chocolate with a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells. CHOCOLATE EVERYWHERE!!! Nice and smooth on the palate. Great stuff!
