Draft pour into a wine glass. Pours a dark brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is ashy and smoky and chocolaty. The taste is fairly bitter and smoky. Some resinous bitter qualities are there as well. Big body and moderate carbonation.

Bomber. Pours a midnight black with a thick frothy dark tan head. Loads of foamy lacing. Stout aroma of coffee and roasted notes. Palate is overwhelmed with roasted malts, burnt cocoa, and dark coffee grinds. Alcohol creeps on you.

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Really thick and inviting. Flavor is big and roasty as well. Tons of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee with a bitter coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol is really warming.

On draft. Black color with beige head. Coffee aroma. Coffee taste and really smooth for its strength. I can barely taste the alcohol. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small creamy head that fades to a ring and leaves a bunch of oily lacing. Aroma has burnt coffee, toasted wood, chocolate, ash, and some earthy and piney hops. Tastes like hoppy burnt coffee and I love it. This could qualify as an imperial black ipa if they wanted it to. Pine, earth, burnt coffee, ash, smoke, dark chocolate, and a hint of raisins. Moderate bitterness in the finish with lingering pine and burnt wood. Full bodied with a thick, creamy mouthfeel. Love this beer. I need to get more.

On draught at 101 Beer Kitchen. Pours black with a medium thick tan head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Smoked malt, hops and chocolate in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of charred malt, earthy hops and dark chocolate. The finish is smoky with a lingering chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
