On tap at Grumpy Troll, pours a very dark brown with a thin off white head, the aroma has a nice amount of chocolate and roasted malt, the flavor has a strong chocolate front end with a finish toffee and malt, a little bit of the abv is tasted but it’s pretty nice.

Appearance is a very dark black with thin white rim around the glass. Aroma of dark roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, slight bitterness. Taste is really good, strong chocolate and coffee notes with a light burn. Really good, definitely malty and bitter, nicely done. A fav

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2013
On tap at Grumpy Troll. Deep black brown body, stained glass corners. Thin soda head. Pretty decent for the style, but certainly leans into the alcohol. Coffee tinged burn. Roasty chocolate aroma. Come off like a lagered Stout. Oily, rich specialty malts. Enjoyable, but lacks the depth of a World Class example.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is chocolate and roasted malt, as well as being lightly tart. Not sure if this is an early sign of infection or if the brewer intended it to be a little bit tart, but it doesn’t take away from the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
