12 oz bottle. (#5 COTF 5/06). Black with a small head. Aroma is burnt wood from a week old campfire. Taste is bitter Some chocolate and just the faintest bit of smoke. Nice carbonation just not enough caramel for the style but it’s worth dealing with twelve ounces of.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 On tap at the Bavarian Inn Deep dark brown pour, with a creamy even tan head. Light soy and toasted oat aroma. Tinge of cofee. Moderately watery tobacco, charred oak and toast. Seems more like a schwarzbier. Light molasses and tinge of grass in the finish of hops. A light sour aftertaste.

Goodbar beer club. Nose is chocolate, nearly burnt malt, some iodine & burnt notes. Flavor is very dark (nearly burnt) malt, cocoa, maybe a little diacteyl. Suddenly goes from rich to a dry burnt (vaguely smoky) finish.

Cola brown with a medium sized tan head. Malty, woody aroma. Roasty and sweet with a medium body. Refreshing and much better than expected!

Tap at fest. Deep brown in color, fairly clear. Decent white head for a small pour. Coffee flavors with a touch of sweetness. Aroma is malty with a touch of caramel and coffee. Later on the flavor takes a lightly sour flavor which isn’t really desireable.

tmongoose (1213) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 15, 2012

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2007
12 oz bottle 10/24/07: Dark brown w/ ruby highlights and a thin, but lasting light beige head. Very, very roasty malt aroma with some chocolate & caramel and a lightl toasty malt muted by dark grains. Clean of esters. Roaste grainy flavor up front, but burnt and acrid causing bitterness and astringency... Also slighly metallic. Lighty oxidized w/ a burnt stale malt finish that is semi dry. Aftertaste is highly burnt & bitter from dark grains... Unpleasant to my palate! Lighty floral hop in the aftertaste, mostly just burnt & bitter. Biting CO2, but smooth once it settles a bit on the tongue, with a lighter body. Too burnt and bitter for me! Oxidation doesn’t help matters, but just not overly enjoyable on my palate. Pleaseant enough aroma, but just not a huge fan.
