BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2006
12-oz. bottle from tjthresh, Batch 7250. Pours opaque with a tiny foamy tan head that mostly diminishes leaving enough for some fizzy lacing. Aroma is deep, rich dark chocolate and coffee malt, yeast (leather) with some faint hops. Malty, moderate acidic, dark sour chocolate, coffee, caramel sweetness, some creaminess, finish is toasty cocoa. Dark bodied, fizzy-tingly, creamy and smooth palate.

hopscotch (9105) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Bottle... This beer rocks!... The nose is of milk chocolate, weak coffee and berries in cream. The color is black for the most part. Deep, dark copper when held up to a halogen bulb. Small, well-tanned head with a copper tint. Fully diminishing. The flavor is of cocoa powder and buttermilk up front. Even more intense tartness on the backside. Liquid joy. Liquid Fun. Full-bodied with lively carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Long, tangy, pungent finish with a small hint of prairie grass at the wee end. World class sweet stout.
