I was very excited to try this beer, but left disappointed. Dk brown pour w/ a full tan well laced head. Barely present aroma of coffee & chocolate. Full well coated palate. Watery coffee flavor light chocolates, not bad, but nothing special.

Growler, courtesy of Badbeer. The aroma has mild dark fruit notes, roasted malts and chocolate. Not intensely concentrated aromatics, but nice. The body is a fairly full black, but there are some mild dark ruby and brown hues if held directly to the light. The head starts full and thick, about a thumb, and is a dark tan color. Bitter roasted fore followed by chocolate and stewed dark fruits. Very thick and creamy mouth feel. I’d like a little more range and intensity in the fruit notes, but ont he whole this is pretty damn tasty.

Draft at the brewpub. 40 IBU’s. Poured a dark brown color with only minimal red-orange light coming through when held up to the light. Head was light tan and left some decent lace behind. The aroma was of chocolate and light coffee. Medium bodied and only slightly on the sweet end of the spectrum. I tasted chocolate, a bit of cola, and light roasty malt. Decent.
