Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a cream-colored head. The aroma is bitter roasted malt, chocolate and some earthy hops.
The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and a little bit of coffee. There is a fair amount of bitterness from the roasted malt. The roasted malt is more dominant than the chocolate or coffee.
Creamy, medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle, thanks to Rachel for bringing this back from Washington for me. Pours medium transparent black, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is dry, with roast barley, fading hops, light washwater/oatmeal notes as well. Flavours are thin, light and mildly roasty, some coffee notes here too. Very light, clean, and straightforward.

Pours solid black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malts, citrus, milk, some smoke, wait maybe that’s outside no I think it’s just very faint. Taste is a good balance of citrus and roast malt sweetness with some burnt bitterness. Medium thin body, lively carbonation.

Having a bottle while working on my final paper for grad school. Pours a rootbeer brown with gigantic frothy head that goes practically no where. Tastes of dark chocolate, malt, some tar, a little smoke, and a little bitter. Great carbonation and fun sunday afternoon beer to have cooped in front of computer screen.
