reebtogi (4885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant with chocolate and dark fruits and light roasted grains. Taste is a roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty and raisin sweetness. Medium to heavy body with light carbonation. Very well balanced brew which teases and pleases the palate. Highly recommended.

notalush (5391) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Inky black pour, wit a thick, frothy, dark tan head - intense but balanced nose of cocoa, espresso, light vinous notes, even some berry-ish fruitiness (raspberries, cranberries) - smells like a decadent raspberry chocolate cake - low, soft carbonation - sweet, for sure,, but tempered by deep roastiness and a late acidity that makes it seem drier than it actually is - rich flavors of bittersweet chocolate - slick, oily mouthfeel - some vinous character, raspberry - some tobacco notes in the finish - intense but wonderfully balanced - awesome beer.
