RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12oz can poured into an English Pint at 43°. Color is black with good carbonation and a thin tight tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet giving off dried fruit scents. It has a medium body with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is roasted coffee and chocolate giving it a dry feel then a mild sweetness with a touch of fruit balances it out letting it finish clean. Overall I like it. its a bold easy drinking brew.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Heavy dark brown, nearly black, with a big fluffy light tan head. The nose is deep and malty with earthy toffee, and a dry semi-astringent cocoa tone. The flavor is a bit dry and licorice-y, with a cocoa biscuitiness and dry toast. Not too special.

12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with local raters. Dark brown color. Thin tan head. Good dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Dark chocolate, oats, light metallic. Toasty. Nice big bitterness, minimal sweet, mostly all bitter. Lots of nice dark cocoa, especially in the aftertaste. Gets more enjoyable as I go. Nice complex, kind of chewy "stout porter"

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Thanks to crajun for the trade! Can. Pours a very dark brown, almost opaque, small tan head. Aroma of roast malts and cocoa powder. The flavor is rich yet simple. Roast malt and chocolate that pretty much is what the aroma sets you up for. Not too sweet, not too bitter; well balanced.
