daknole (10785) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
2008 bottle from cletus. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is totally chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor has some roasted malt, a bit of tartness and some good chocolate notes. A very good beer. But not quite what I expected.

Dogbrick (10714) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2015
Sample at Bad Parenting Club (plus a few dirty aunt/uncles?!): NC Beer Edition on 03/28/2015. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick foamy khaki head that diminishes gradually. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied with flavors of roast malt, cocoa, coffee and mild hops. The finish is rich and slightly boozy with a mocha aftertaste. Good beer all around that I am shocked it has taken me this long to try.

Pours completely black, with modest white head. Thanks Mikesgroove. Pleasant aroma, was expecting extreme chocolate and happy that was not the case. Also happy not coffee overdone. Well integrated RIS, bittersweet chocolate. Medium mouuthfeel. Good drinkability.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2010 Growler... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, light brown head. Decent retention. The nose is of chocolate and ethanol with hints of molasses, leather and caramel... also, a touch of acetaldehyde. Flavor-wise, it’s big and malty with blasts of chocolate, caramel, coffee grounds and charcoal. Mildly sweet; moderately burnt and bitter. Full-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Chocolaty, charred, abrasive finish. A huge THANKS to boboski for sharing his growler of beer
