12oz bottle procured from the beer fridge at the lake. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a brown head. Aroma is nutty, roasty, chocolate. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, coffee, chocolate, with a bittersweet chocolate finish. Pretty tasty.

BoostIPA (1181) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2014
12oz bottle. Just started getting dark horse distro here. Pours a pretty solid black with a minimal tan head. Aromas of toffee, roasted nuts. No perceptible hop aroma. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors are a haphazard mish mash of week old coffee, wet cardboard, pronounced sweetened dumpster drippings and cocklash. No.

On tap. Pour is very dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt, licorice, coffee creamer, and cocoa. Good, a bit thin for the ABV.

erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 25, 2014
Very black bodied and small dark head. Dark malts, little coffee, little vanilla, aged, smooth and we’ll integrated rather than a mix of separate aroma. Most apparent in the nice hop mix that provides a solid bitter punch in the the taste. Excellent mouth feel too. Aroma is nice, but the palate and richness of the taste are even better. Great brew! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

Excellente bière noire très équilibrée, arômes de chocolat/café avec une post amertume très longue... Une bière gourmande !
