On tap at JL beers. Pours a jet black color with a thick light creamy brown color. Smell is roastied grains and vanilla. Taste is chocolate and caramel burn sugar but not over the top. Another great one from the Fargo boys!!!! Keep it up. This one is worth a try and worth coming back to!!!! Bravo. Best one yet.

Can - Molasses and dark chocolate with some roast. Jet black with a light brown head. Bittersweet chocolate, some coffee notes and roast malts. Decent but nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ WBC: Dark brown in color, light mahogany, topped with a finger of creamy tan head. Nose is sweet and smokey… something I can’t quite figure out. Nice roast, light smoke, and this sweet vanilla/toffee sweetness that really ties it together. Sniffing becomes oddly addictive. More smoke comes through in the flavor, even a little peat. Good roast element and light espresso. Missing the sweetness of the nose, but satisfying. Easily the best of the FBC brews I’ve had to date.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Peacock Alley. Dark brown pour that looks fairly dense. Mostly white head. Aroma is a mix of roasty malts and semi-sweet chocolate. Some coffee on the taste as well. Nice beer.

Draft from Rhombus Pizza Fargo. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam which disappears very quickly. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose with a hint of dark chocolate. It tastes pretty much like it smells. Finsihes clean.
