Deep black color, with a tan-colored head, with roasted malt, dark malt, hint of chocolate, even note of nutmeg and cacao aromas folow through on a medium-bodied palate with black coffee, burnt malt, roasted malt, touch of vanilla and cacao, also note of roasted coffee beans, leading towards a dry roasted bitterness finish.

on tap at the brewpub. pours black with a small tan head. roasted malts and coffee very apparent in the nose. taste is sweet but nicely balanced with a bit of hops. mouthfeel is creamy and slick, lightly carbonated. i enjoy their Imperial more, but this is still a very good beer.

Beautiful black robe, with no chill haze to dull it up, and a somewhat decent mocha head that slowly tapered away at around the half-pint point.
The usual combo of cocoa and coffee, the fusel alcohol then creeps up on you quite cool and solvent-like in the nose, with plums and other dark fruits in the mix.
Smooth carbonation, nice roasted malt and decent body, however it sort of turns to ashes in the finale, leaving it dry and a little flat in the end.
