Draft at World of Beer Viera. Opaque-bodied with a roasty, slightly sour aroma. Hops in the flavor somewhat overpowered by coffee and chocolate. In this beer, the flavors just don’t meld together well (I’ve enjoyed others of the style). Just average.

Tap at happy gnome. 16oz. Black with light tan head. Aroma is subtle. A little bit of coffee chocolate early notes. Then sweet and slightly hoppy. Had bitterness, but good balance and body. Nice beer with good mouthfeel.

Dark brown to black color, small brownish head. Interesting aroma, original; mild coffee, dark cookies, light smoke, fire wood. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; a bit too ashy, roasted malt flavor, with hints of fruits. Ashy final.

Bottle. The aroma is quite stark ... rich with a muddy, syrupy mash. The beer drinks with a lot going on ... there’s a thick, woody base, almost like they started by boiling tree bark. Then there’s a cacophony of earthy hop, citric hop, and a big chewy and sugary malt backdrop. Lot going on here. Robust to say the least. (#5566, 7/1/2014)

Moderate high roast and chocolate dominate the nose. Moderate floral hops. Dark brown with red highlights. Light brown head lingers throughout. Creamy with large bubbles and clings down the glass. Medium-full mouthfeel. Moderate roast with the hops playing second fiddle (floral). Moderate high bitterness. Semi-dry finish.

Dark brown, near black. ample pillowy bubbles. Aroma of roast grains, char, grapefruit, resin. Pretty much black ipa fare to the T. Chewy, toasty malt, bitter, fragrant hops. Above average.

Hazy reddish-brown. Toasty, slightly woody, citrusy character, strong alcohol, and chocolate. A bit muddled but has basic CDA components.

Bottle - Roasty malts and skunky pine hops. Jet black with a decent brown head. Pine and roast with a nice malty bitterness. Big, bold and nice.
