Aroma is sweet hops, honeydew with some roasted malt. Appearance is black with a lightish brown head. Taste is sweet and hoppy, finishing like a stout. Mouthfeel is thick, soft carbonation. Overall, pretty good.

On draft at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a dark brown with a filmy head that leaves a decent lace. The aroma is hoppy, with a hint of roastyness and some chocolate notes. The flavor is pretty hoppy. The roast slowly moves in and then you're taken back by the dry hoppy finish that is a little more sought in an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the source... Dark cola hue. Thin creamy light beige head... Aroma of molasses and cocoa with a mild roast perhaps touch of ash... Flavors of molasses with dark fruit and a mild roast quality. Slightly bitter finish. Full bodied, almost syrupywith adequate carbonation. Not bad but plenty of other ris to go for on top of this.

Glass at the Eccentric Cafe on 3/30/13. Pitch black pour with a thick tan head. Malty nose with notes of chocolate and roast. Malty flavor turning to licorice and creamy chocolate before a bitter roasted malt finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Eccentric. Body is deep brown and supports little head. Aromas are weakly hinting at coffee and dark brown sugar. Flavor is lots of coffee and a little anise that picks up on the tail end. Finish is bitter and licorice like.
