Part of a flight at the brewery. Pours a pitch black with a nice tan head. Definite oaky, woody aroma with some dark fruits floating around in the background. Flavor is plums, figs, oak and vanilla. Excellent.

Clear black with a persistent light beige head with loads of sticky lace. Aroma is nice and oaked and chocolaty with a touch of bitter black grains and...caramelized raisins..? Taste is much the same, with dark roasted chocolate tones, some oaked vanilla, light smokiness, some raisin and subtle dark fruit sweetness, with some dark malt earthiness with just the right amount of bitterness throughout to balance and provide a pleasing mild bitterness. Actually kinda tastes like pretzel after a while...an oak and chocolate pretzel.

Deep black with a thick, lasting tan head - nose of bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, mild oak, light bitterness - creamy and full-bodied - flavor has a lot of milk chocolate character up front, followed by lightly caramelized sugars - then, deep roast and moderate dark malt bitterness balances - finish of light oak and bitterness, with some spicy alcohol heat - pretty solid.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of big oak, dark fruits, roast, some chocolate, slight coffee, hints of sweet caramelized sugars as well. Taste is a nice mix of oak and dark fruits, some roast, coffee and bitter cocoa notes, nice dark chocolate as well, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty tasty, the oak is very prominent.

Taster pour, cool, at Copper Kettle. Dark brown, not quite opaque, with a tan head. Nice espresso, chocolate with oak vanilla nose. Dark malt and vanilla is prominent in the taste, dark fruit (prune, dried cherrie), and toasted coconut around the mouth. Body slightly heavy for 8.5. Nicely balanced on the front, rich in the middle, and very long, bitter and residual coconut in the finish. Alcohol not really apparent. Sweetness not quite married, but otherwise a very nice sipping beer.
