Bottle. Black with a minimal sudsy tan head. Nose is nutty, cocoa husks, light roast, earthy hops. Flavor is bitter at first, lots of dark fruits particularly prunes and dates in the middle with a chocolate milk like finish. A little bit of brine/olives. Sticky bitterness lingers. Solid.

Bottle @ home. What? Do we have a winner from Breckenridge? Huh? Let’s go... Black appearance with a dark brown head. Roasty, chocolate malty aroma with notes of caramel and light espresso. Creamy mouth feel. Dark toffee/chocolate flavor that’s fairly roasty with a fair amount of caramel. Pretty sweet but pretty easy drinking. Not that bad.

On tap when visiting MN, dark thick black pour with nice tan almost brown head. Aroma is big milk chocolate notes, nice espresso and roasted malt, hints of caramel and toffee come through a bit as well. Taste is sweet chocolate up front, some bitter cocoa in the middle mixing with the espresso and roasted malts, slight hints of sweet caramel with a fairly sweet finish, really nice mouthfeel on this one as well. Easily the best brew from these guys I’ve had.

Bottle. Black pour with a fading, dense tan head. Roasted malt and dark chocolate come through in the aroma followed by coffee notes, faint vanilla and burnt caramel. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and dark coffee. Body is medium, slightly sticky and has a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more dark chocolate, burnt coffee, caramel and roasted malt.

My first beer from this brewery! Opaque black color, tiny brown head. Roasted aroma, burned, black coffee. Full-bodied. Sweet caramel, soya sauce, licorice and tobacco in the flavor. Soft palate. Short finish. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste.

ChainGangGuy (4353) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2012
11 ounce pour - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Dispensed a black body with a small, yellow-beige head deposited thin lace sheets on the way down.

Smell: Moderately roasty maltiness in the nose with notes of black licorice twists, soft Hershey’s Kisses, and a sniff of an individually-wrapped California prune.

Taste: It says "chocolate," it says "cream," but it starts off with licorice, then gaining some traction with semi-sweet chocolate, light vanilla, and a restrained, hesitant roastiness. Splash of prune juice, a bit stark, akin to the quality of a stout aged two or so years, though, as it warms, it kinda settles down with the chocolate coming forward more. Very, very low hop character, essentially nil bitterness. A Reader’s Digest of the various tastes clumped into the smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Slick, silken mouthfeel.

Overall: Breckenridge is a brewery that, well, often fails to satisfy, but this 72 is pretty good.
