Tap at DEBC. Pours a dark black color with a tan ring of head. Aroma is alcohol, dark chocolate and sweet notes. Flavor is grapes, sharp dark malts, bitter notes with a super sweet flavor. A little much I think safari as the residual sweetness.

Pours very dark, almost black, grayish head. Dark fruit and spice on the nose, some cocoa too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a bit of smokiness, maybe more like an over roasted nuts, almost burnt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Addison Saucer. Deep black, decent lace and mediocre tan head. Honestly smells of dry porter yeast and roasted malts, despite being a stout.
Malty, yet holds no defining characteristics. Just kinda "there". Disappointing, as with most DEBC beers. :/

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. The beer pours brownish-black with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and chocolate in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of roasty coffee, chocolate malt and some herbal hops in the background. The finish is mildly bitter with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
