Pour on tap at the brewery, this was my favorite and I wish this was on cask instead cause it would have made it that much better. Dark brownish red pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa powder, nuts, earth and musty notes, hints of bready and yeasty malts, touch of toffee and caramel as well, balanced very well. Taste is a nice mix of dark cocoa powder with hints of caramel and nuts, some bitter earthy musty notes with a touch of yeast, some bready malts come back with a touch of grass and bittering hops, finishing fairly clean, nice balance of sweet and bitter and dry.

Tap @ brewery. Clear, deep reddish brown appearance with a cream colored head. Roasty, burnt toffee, mild cocoa, a touch fruity aroma. Quite delicious, a touch smoky, roasty caramel malty, burnt toffee, somewhat earthy, very clean flavor. Easy to drink and quite flavorful.

On tap @ the brewery, pours a clear rich brown with a small light tan head. Scent of cocoa, dark roast coffee, black tea tannins. Extremely roasty flavor, some dark dried fruit and toffee. Crisp med. mouthfeel, dry deep roast finish. Really nice session beer.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 [I have tried this a few more times since my initial rating - all newer samples have been clear - no present yeast - I think the yeast muddled some of the flavors in my original sample - aside from the roast and minerals, there are a lot of underlying complexities, like fig and raisin and damp oak - however, the dry and roasty character remains center stage - I love this beer so much] Tap at the brewery - turbid dark ruby pour - a really well executed dark mild - very dry, with complex notes of dry roasted nuts, cocoa, moderate acidity, lightly fruity hops, a bit of roast and a nice mineral bite on the finish - a bit of earthy hop character - very quaffable and tasty!
