From tap. Dark pour, thick beige head that turns into heavy lacing. Creamy... obviously. Great roasted malts with rich chocolate bite on the end.

Fresh bottle. Pours solid black with tan head. Big aroma here if vanilla, some allspice, cocoa, coffee. Taste is coffee bitterness, nice vanilla and toasty notes, well roasted barley. Lots of bubbles..lingers on the palate. Smooth but not as creamy as I would expect. Still delicious.

A very dark pour with tan head. A faint smell of cocoa. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate that lingers a while. A nice beer.

Oct 2013 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a little brown-ruby fringe and a tan head. Aroma is roasty with milk and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is roasty, almost smokey, lots of malt and less chocolate than the smell. An earthy bitterness that coats the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium full and lightly creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of roasty malt character with chocolatey aroma. The head was thin and left little lacing. There’s just something about the mouthfeel I wasn’t keen on. Maybe I’m just comparing this too much to the Expedition.
