[Tap] Nearly black in color with a dense light brown colored head. Rich aroma of charred malts, heavy coffee, smoke and bitter chocolate. Taste is of coffee, baker’s chocolate, ash, light wood smoke, light vanilla and brown sugar. Smooth and oily palate. Lingering sweet malts and bitter coffee grounds in the finish. Very impressive. I actually went around the corner to Sightglass to buy some of the Rwandan blend that they used in the beer. It’s just as tasty.

This was exactly as described by its namesake - but a bit too much for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at RateBeer Best 2016. Pour is black with a very small off-white head. Flavor and aroma of roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate, and espresso. Finish is similar with a touch of booze.

Great tasting Porter.. Cellarmaker does a great job brewing their beer and serving it very fresh.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque, with a small beige head that settles into a ring. Good fresh roasted coffee in this, with lightly smoked malts, dark chocolate, earth, tobacco. Mild roast. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, roasty mouthfeel. No particular element of this stands out particularly, but it all comes together really nicely. The imperial, barrel-aged version also enhances it remarkably in my estimation, where others at my table found them more even.

Tap at the Brewpub. Black with lace. Smoky nose, coffee, tobacco, chocolate. Fits the name. Sweet, smoky coffee flavor, cocoa and some berries. A bit light and oily. Good but a bit too sweet.

Taste comprises rich coffee grinds, chocolate chips, charr, light smoke, roast malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid coffee affair.

b3shine (7753) - Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Draft to half-pint at Cellarmaker. This batch is 7.8% abv with 47 IBUs. Looks good; a slightly translucent very dark (almost dull black) cola with foamy beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast alongside a touch of smoke. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly bitter medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel. A bit more smoke on the tongue as well. Enjoyable.
