Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin brown head. A bit of coffee along with a bunch of cocoa, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla. A bit twangy fruitiness from the coffee in the flavor. A lot of chocolate with a nice soft body. Pretty nice.

Dogbrick (7954) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. Pours glossy black with a medium thick tan head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Difficult to detect aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium, smooth body with flavors of coffee, dark malt and bittersweet chocolate. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Just average overall.

Tap @ Block 15... Poured pitch, jet black with a khaki head. Full, thick, foamy, dry palate. Aroma had coffee and nutty tones. Full of roast, oat creaminess and sweetness, coffee, licorice, bitter-sweet molasses, and a dark malt & sugar finish.

Steve_0 (2592) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Scott. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Cocoa, roasty, earthy, nutty, bready, and grassy aroma. Taste is chocolate, coffee grounds, bready, toasted bread, light grass, dark fruits, earthy, and dirt with a bitter finish> medium body with soft carbonation. Well-built just very uninspiring.
