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.

Had on tap at the Indianapolis Ram. Chocolate and coffee notes, but like they’re mixed with water. Good flavor, just not enough of it.

"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."

Had in Dallas @ Humperdinks as the Humperdinks brand .. . Medium dark brown, very light foam .. no lacing .. . low smell of tart burnt molasses .. . thin, and only lightly roasty .. . Disorder is right... . Then came the rocks -- jagged rocks, hitting me with their jags.

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.

Black with a disapating coffee head and coffee aroma. The flavor is very subtle ... choco-coffee flavor that's not too strong. Good "JV" porter.
