Definite chocolate aroma, but not strong. Very dark in color with a rich brown head that is moderate in body. Decent taste with a slight bitterness to it. Overall it’s a decent brew.

Sample at the "Drink Moar Beer!" tasting on 06/12/2015: The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily to a wispy film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasty malt, sweet chocolate and slighty earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Rating from notes. I have had this on tap in Asheville and most recently from a bottle. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, toffee, earthy notes, a splash of coffee, some bitterness to the finish, medium body, decent porter.
