UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a completely black color with a thick tan head. The aroma has roasted malts, slight chocolate, cocoa. The taste has a medium body with a nice slightly sweet taste upfront followed by a mild bitter finish. The finish is pretty dry & overall a good balance.

Black as night with a tan head. Thick in body with just enough carbonation to prevent stickiness, Flavor is fantastic with tons of dark roasted malty and a touch of sour.

Pours black with a brown light head that laces the stemware from tap. Pretty thin mouth feel with bubbly but not intense carbonation. Taste is really smokau and chalky. Intensely roasted malts. Slightly sweet. Aroma is a little sweet and chocolate.

Draft at Chappy’s Taphouse. Wonderful beer, the pour is opaque with a nice tan head and aromas of dark chocolate. Flavors range from dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee to hints of vanilla. Nice and roasty with some serious flavor.
