3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours turbid deep blackish brown with 2-finger sticky khaki head. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, mild coffee, hops, some lactose. Tastes pretty rich and hefty in palate density, with roasty chocolate malt flavor, some molasses, hops, overall semi-sweetness, and backup hops. This one finishes with a rich dark patent and choc malt flavor, backup hops, and cacao and dark choc syrup.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the bottle a deep, warm sable with a thick and frothy tan head. Aroma has a strong overtone of sweet chocolate plus notes of licorice and molasses and a hint of quality roast coffee. Flavor has firm chocolate, licorice and molasses notes plus undertones of caramel and coffee, and is rather sweet but not too sweet for a beer. Firm, smooth body has a good amount of fizz. Worth a drive to the package store!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is chocolatey with light roast, mild sweetness and some earthy tones mixed in. The flavor is semi sweet chocolate, mild roasted malts, a splash of caramel, light coffee and mild bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied, very smooth mouth feel. This is pretty good and I would probably buy this again which doesn’t happen very often.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
