brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
A: Pours a very dark brown color with a nice off-white, perhaps khaki colored, head. S: Nice and roasty with a bit of a coffee aroma to it as well as some dark chocolate. There may be some hints of dark fruits, like black cherries or currants. Touches of char and molasses are also present. T: Similar things going on in terms of the flavor. Strong roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. There’s a touch of creaminess to it that I wasn’t quite anticipating, but found enjoyable either way. The mild molasses character is there on the tongue and quite nice. M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation and smooth feel on the tongue. D: A really solid beer that was easy to drink and which I found enjoyable overall.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet offers big-time chocolate and lesser notes of tobacco and cola. Full-bodied and creamy with kicked-back carbonation. The hearty flavor is sweet and chocolaty. Finishes bittersweet (more bitter than sweet). Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock!
