Dark black, almost opaque pour. Lots of grains and maltiness with a roasted presence in the aroma. Taste was much crisper bringing in a slight hop bite to match biscuit, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Light and drinkable for being so rich. Very good.

Shaker pint draft at the Brass Tap in Coral Springs, Florida. The pour is a dark brown black with a one inch khaki head that falls quick. The aroma is soft roast and char nutty malt. The taste is the clean fresh nutty malt with the char roast of the nose. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a mineral soft roast dry finish. Clean and very well made.

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
En fût au Riverside Market Cafe. Un verre presque noir. Une petite tête brune bien droite. Des parfums de malts chocolatés rôtis avec des traces de café, du caramel terreux, de la fine fumée de torréfaction et des arômes de conifères. Des saveurs bien sèches de grains noirs grillés et rôtis avec une petite présence de fumée et des traces de houblons américains et anglais. En bouche, un corps moyen avec un pétillement au ralenti et une texture bien crémeuse. Une finale chocolatée justement sèche. Une belle surprise. Très facile à boire.

I love this style and was happy to try this one from CCB. Hot and Soul in Ft. Lauderdale with Dan and Roxy. Pint glass pour was very dark, mostly opaque. Off-white head that lasted and not much lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malts, earth, peat, leather, balancing hops with slight pine and grass. Taste was similar with a malty thickness to it. Roasted malts, salt, nuts, cocoa. Medium to full body and good carbonation. I loved it.

Aurelius (4230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2014
Clear, black, but hard to see through. Khaki, short, tight head. Muted pencil shaving aroma. Malty, slightly roasty, sunflower seed flavors. Good mouth, satisfying balance. I could drink a mess of this. Sweetish, smooth, with a good bit of roastiness. Proof on tap, downstairs with PorterPounder.

Have wanted to try this one for a while. Black pour, thin tan head, little lacing. Nose is biscuit, roasted grains, slight hop presence. Taste is biscuit, roasted grains, some watered down coffee. Thin to medium mouthfeel.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice tasting beer. Light and simple. Easy drinking. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Well balanced. This is a nice brew that I wouldn’t mind drinking again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-04-2012
