Draft @ Fatheads. Deep brown in color with a medium tan head that vanished quickly. Aroma and flavor runs hand and hand. Milk chocolate, ash, weak traces of bitter coffee and an herbal type flavor I can put my finger on. Medium body but leans on the thin side. Mouthfeel was a tad watery. Moderate carbonation. I donít know about this brew. Something just seemed a bit off, nothing major because I couldnít pin down what I didnít like about it. Maybe I need a return trip to Ohio to try it again, LOL.

Great aroma of chocolate and dark fruits but not so much of the roasted malt Iíve come to expect. Flavor is sweet malt and fruit with a little chocolate. Mouth feel is sweet carbonation is a little above average. Overall a Solis beer and I love the aroma.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a darker brown to black with a khaki head of foam. Good retention. Aroma is sweet and brown sugary. Some burnt caramel notes come through as well. Lighter fruity notes come through in the finish. Roasty and sweet. Pretty nice overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brownish black color with a thin light brown colored head on top. The smell of the beer was full of roasted aromas and some light sweet dark fruit notes. The taste was malty with a roasted finish and subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel was smooth and slick with a minimal carbonation to it. Overall itís a nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a black color wtih a large foamy dark tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was anise, coffee and a bit roasty - pleasant but rather faint. The flavor was anise, sweetish malts, plum, vanilla, coffee, faint toasty malts and a faint boozy presence underneath. Long finish of anise and plum. Thick and creamy body. Solid.
