Pours a solid black with a tab head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of toasted malt with some chocolate and a bit of coffee. The same profiles are in the flavor, with the toasted malt up front and a slightly spicy mouthfeel leading to a mild bittersweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nakedwhendrunk (2095) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There was barely any difference in both glasses for the smell and the appearance. The appearance was basically black in color and it had a nice one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled foamy lacing that ended up sliding down into the beer after a while. The smell had a decent amount of light to medium bitter arrangement of milk and dark chocolates that allow a nice roasty bitter coffee under my nose. The taste had a nice roasty to sweet blend blessing my taste buds and allowing a nice gentle dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was semi - sharp and good to me. Overall, this was a pretty good beer I’d have again.
