Rocky balooning head that sticks around for the whole beer. Dark, but not a black hole by any means. Musty sour aroma with some hints of dark malts: chocolate, roasted, maybe Special B. Some alcohol presence ... not quite a stout, but not quite a belgian dark ale -- the roastiness makes it a definable stout. An interesting juxtaposition of two favorite beer countries.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Dark brown body, large fizzy tan head. Interesting roasted "sweet and sour" (?) aroma containing creamy toffee / butterscotch, berries, chocolatey tobacco. Flavor... rich roasted chocolate malt, espresso, vanilla, anise, tobacco. I don’t know what that flavor is... roasted tobacco anise? It reminds me of a large component in the Westvleteren 12 in a way; maybe its from the yeast? Too carbonated for me... its a pet peeve. Either way... great flavor and aroma... good complexity and balance.

The color is strange - black but somehow orange. Not ruby, orange. Quite bready and sweet nose - cola, nuts, bananna, alcohol vapors. Tastes somewhat like cola at first, giving way to a nice bready/nut thing. Refreshingly dry but a bit much on the alcohol. Cherries and wood in the finish.

hotstuff (3921) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Huge tan head that was mostly lasting, small-medium sized bubbles, fair lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Aroma was malty, chocolate, roasty, and coffee. Flavor was acidic, lightly bitter, malty, coffee, and chocolate. Very tingly palate. Medium body.
