Served on draft at Thirsty Monk South. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and berries. The taste is roasted malts, nutty notes, chocolate, herbal hops and mild berries in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle... O’sS&BS-I-T-YVBThrowdown... Pours black with a creamy, light brown head. Good retention. The nose is dominated by charcoal, black coffee and cocoa with an unfortunate touch of acetaldehyde. Medium to full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, tangy and fruity with a dab of chocolate thrown in the mash for good measure. Finishes tart and lightly bitter. Kudos to dchmela for bringing this bottle to the Throwdown!

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a clear dark brown with a faint tanned white head at the edges. Big stone fruit and yeast on the nose, a soft bit of cocoa and some papery oxidization. Medium-bodied, sweet and fruity, berries over warming sweet alcohol, roast and cocoa. Raspberry and chocolate syrup through warm booze, fruity yeast.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Courtesy of markwise. Pours deep dark with cherry red hues and lasting thin mocha head The aroma is malty with malt balls, chocolate, some roastiness and a modest level of cherry fruit sweetness and tartness. The taste is much different starting with an initial pulse of malt and caramel sweetness followed quickly by cherry and berry tartness. The flavor only has hints of the maltiness noted in the nose. It ends with lingering cherry tartness and fading sweetness.

drowland (7774) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bomber (courtesy emacgee) into a tulip glass. The pour is black with red on the edges with a 1-finger brown head that fades to half then sticks a bit. The aroma is a unique mish-mash of chocolate-covered raspberries and Belgian yeast. The flavor is fresh sour raspberries followed by creamy chocolate with a definitive lingering roasted malt finish - not exactly coffee - but definitely dark roasted malts.
