Black pour with a brown head that reminded me of bubbling toffee. Roasty, malty, coffee and chocolate aromas, flavours are dark chocolate, almost sweet chocolatey liqueur. Weirdly interesting and bloody tasty

A most interesting tasting beer, it is very dark, full-bodied, and hopped with some unusual plants. The hops are well balanced with the very caramelized malts. Other flavorings may be added. Overall, I really enjoy this beer.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is slightly sweet, dark roasted malt and a smooth bitter finish. Excellent Schwarzbier.

Dark black beer with a milk chocolate head that sicks to the glass. Aroma is bitter and sour almost wine like with chocolate notes. Rich with dark chocolate flavors with a heavy malt profile. A great beer that I will drink often and a style I will find more of.

black with tan head, wisps remain. Anise and faint manure nose, sugary brownie muting it all. Sugary chocolate liquors early on front before marshmallow sweetness dominates mid with some roast emerging late in finish alongside light plastic. Sticky and full body, sugars all over the end.

A gorgeous looking beer. I?d give it a 6 for appearance if it let me as I don?t think i?ve. Ever seen a beer behave this way upon pouring. Almost like it is creaming bubbling up in the bottle. Dark black, big big big tan head. Mighty bubbles. Great legs. Aroma is mineral, chocolates. Taste is the same with some toasted barley. Creamy feel, with some zip. A very nice beer. Very different. Very interesting. Only "downer" is that I think 22 oz. is really the limit on what you can stand because of how rich it is. This is from 3.13.14.

hotstuff (4508) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Rated on 7-20-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a small light brown head that mostly diminishes, black as night opaque body, suspended carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and hops. The taste is lightly bitter, hops, roasted, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium-full bodied. For some reason the flavor of this beer fell short for me. It needs more flavor.

Aroma is a rich maltiness with roastiness. Some smokiness and fig notes aswell. Taste is a very sweet and rich maltiness that finishes with a bitter and roastiness. Body is very dark with a light brown head thst retains reasonably. The complex body finishes slightly shallow.
