DiarmaidBHK (3467) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Draft at Urban Orchard. Pours black with a khaki head. Big chocolate notes on the nose. Dry and dusty on the tongue. It’s like biting into a bar of baker’s chocolate which doesn’t sound good but in a beer context it is. Finishes clean.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 5, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured very dark with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma and flavor were chocolate, some coffee, hints of vanilla, a little ashy. Good sweet/bitter balance, finished dry. Mouthfeel creamy with a light body. Favorite thing I had at the brewery.

Drake (8616) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft at Brewvival 2012. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin brown head that quickly fades. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, bitter hops that linger. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.
