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!

tap at the brewery last Fall - Pours near black with a small tan head. The aroma is of smoky, dark roasted malt and chocolate. It tastes of sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a mild smokiness. Lightly carbonated and full bodied, it’s a very good beer.

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.
