Pretty much opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth and semi dry palate, light fine carbonation. Mild dark malts. Little fruity rang, almost coca cola. Pinch of cocoa powder. Whispers of roast and coffee. Light semi dry finish. A tidy and flavoursome brown.

Strykzone (5066) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a nice lighter tan head that leaves stringy lacing. A rich malty cocoa nose. From the first sip this one is less than hoped for. It is one of those beers where i like everything tasted but they work against each other rather than compliment. Cocoa, mixed fruit, and an unfortunate mix of hops. Although this is a European style, the addition of west coast US hops would have been welcomed. The finish brought out more of the malt and especially the chocolate and that was nice.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass on May 31, 2012. Minimal head, well less than a finger. Color was maroon black, reminded me of grape cough syrup. Caramel tan lacing that went away fairly quickly. Lots of different smells that didn’t initially match up that well. Got caramel and toffee notes, then dark chocolate. Also some coffee malts in there as well Tasted a bit better than the smell, at least more balanced. Got roasted toffee malts up front, followed by dark chocolate and coffee. Got a weird aftertaste that was a bit like cough syrup. Full-to-medium body. Thinner texture. Average carbonation. Smooth finish. A decent beer. I’d give it another try, along with some of their other beers.

larryLSB (439) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured from 12 oz, Brunette on the label. Dark brown with a tint of red, small light tan head. Bottle says brewed in Ukiah, so not sure where it is really made. Mild nose, chocolate is prevailing. Taste was smooth and cola like, on the sweet side, somewhat thin body. Overall drinkable with a clean dry finish.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Brown, almost black appearance with a small tan head, mostly diminishing, no lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla and toffee. Similar flavor, malty, sweet and creamy with minimal bitterness. Medium to full body, slick and smooth with soft carbonation and a rich finish.

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s. Very dark mahogany pour with a small foamy tan head. Toasted malt, bread, bittersweet chocolate, maybe a hint of licorice. Medium to lighter on the carbonation. Medium palate. Not bad.

Maverick34 (2355) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottled. Stupid name for a DB. Pours dark brown, slightly tan medium head. Malts tasted a bit too cooked, sweetness. A tolerable DB, nothing more.

Zymurgeist2 (1104) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Out of the bottle. Aroma is a nice, dark bread and cocoa. Rich malt. Dark brown with a beige head that leaves a collar. Flavor is husky malt and slightly syrupy. Flavor leaves quickly with only a sweetness remaining. Lacks the complexity of a good DB, but tolerable.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma notes of chocolate with dark bread and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor has a chalky chocolate flavor with a bit of roasted malts and earthy grains.
