On tap at Schaumburg location. Pour is deep dark brown and little to no head. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sweet upfront. Notes of sweet chocolate and smoky ash but leaves a bit to be desired. Not great but ok.

"very smooth if not terribly robust. roasted malt abounds in the aroma and flavor, with a hint of chocolate and smoke. pretty well done, and the best we had there, but not a standout."

On tap at CB Potts. Cola-colored body with a thin beige head. Not much aroma, but a bit of caramel. Not too substantial, but not a bad beer.

Sampler at Schaumburg. Brown-black body. Caramel toffee, sugar plum, raisin. Not really that enjoyable, sticky cloying specialty malt, not much going on. Not undrinkable, but sub-par. Dunkel-Schwarz characteristics.

Draft to taster at Ram in Indy. Looks solid; a translucent dark cola with very thin light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of dark chocolate too. Good on the palate. Enjoyable.

Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a very dark brown color. Nose was pretty dry and definitely roasty, with some subtle coffee elements in there. Taste was roasty as well, with a bitter dry finish. Decent drink, but mediocre for the style.

12/15/2013. On tap. Finally something with a bit of flavor. Dark roasted malt, chocolate, caramel. The most exciting beer I tasted at the place, yet nothing to really write home about.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, lots of coffee, hints of dark cocoa, dark fruits, and some caramel comes through as well. Taste is a mix of cocoa powder, dark chocolate, into slightly sweet dark fruits, finishing fairly coffee forward, slightly roasted.

Enjoyed from on tap at Ram restaurant/brewery in Salem, OR. The beer’s color is dark brown/translucent. Decent light tan foamy head that dissipates. Roasted and malty but fairly muted with somewhat of a watery-coffee finish. 6.1 BD
