Hold on to yer booty, this one packs a punch.Ingredients: Two-Row*, Munich *, Black, Caraffa*, Roasted Barley*, Smoked Malt, Oats* & Extra Special* Malts, Magnum and Palisades Hops, Ale Yeast and tripled filter water. *organic

Tmoney99 (11228) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, smoke and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy sweet roasted black coffee malty flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good, not great.

22 oz bomber from Matt. Poured a pitch black body with a fizzy average sized light brown head. Aroma and flavor of light chocolate, brown bread, soapy citrus and a touch of dust. Great body, fuller with soft carbonation and some lingering burnt notes. This beer probably would have rated a lot higher if I didn’t just drink Hunaphus and BA Eclipse 50/50.

johnnnniee (2517) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Bottled on 12/09/2008 Received in trade form brentk56, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid black color with a decent sized fluffy tan head that shows moderate retention. This smells incredible from the moment I pop the cap until I stick the bottle in the recycle bin. Dark fruits, caramel, licorice, chocolate, hints of smoke, its all in here. Little to no hop presence in the aroma. Taste is caramel and chocolate up front, licorice, dark fruit and faint hints of alcohol and hop deep underneath. Smooth chocolate frappe creamy mouthfeel, light level of carbonation, medium to thick body. I wish I hadn’t sat on this one so long because I’d love to know what its like fresh. This is drinking beautifully right now, too bad its the only one I’ve ever seen.

PhillyBeer2112 (2567) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Rich and maybe even a little bretty, smoky aroma, with some raisins. Mild alcohol and roast bite, mellows out with some cheeses. Fairly smooth and pretty OK. Very dark brown-black with dark tan head.
