It has a pleasant chocolate aroma. It has a great deep black look. It has a nice mouthful on my palate. I just did not enjoy the flavor of this beer. It does have a sweet brown sugar with milk chocolate taste. However its mixed in with a smoky (cigarette smoke) and earthy (dirt) flavor. It did not mix well. It has a pour finish. Not a beer I am looking to try again.

On tap at the Wrigleyville GI Brewpub. The pour is a thin brown, with some reddish characters around the edges and a gorgeous khaki head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing. The aroma is delightful. There is a great chocolatey presence over the roasted malts and coffee notes. I like the subtle tones of toffee in the background as well. The flavor is just great also. There is a nice sweet roasted malt front, moving through the coffee, toffee and possessing a bit of creaminess as well. The mouth feel is creamy and velvety with a delightful carbonation and a really good chocolatey lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap poured into a sampler nonic. A combination of mellow smokey, chocolate, toffee, and nutty aroma come through along with some late notes of fig and brown sugar. There’s also some very faint notes of woody and maple. It pours an opaque reddish body with an espresso-like head. The head reduces to a light dusting layer in the middle with the majority of the head gathering around the sides. There’s a decent balance between medium amounts of sweet and bitter. The medium-full malty body is thick and oily with a light, but sharp carbonation.The tastes match the aroma pretty spot on with the addition of a somewhat resin finish. The aftertaste is of woody, fig, and dark chocoalte
