jb (2755) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2008
This was a nice find in a store I found through ratebeer in Columbus. Very dark with a thick small bubble head and some lacing was left. Raspberry, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee in the nose. Smooth, yes, silky, but somewhat oily mouthfeel. Neutral finish, not much of an aftertaste. Very very nice.

Thanks to Rogueone for the bottle! Dark brown pour with airy brown head and drippy lace. Cream, roast, and chocolate on the nose. Big coffee flavor upfront, but for me the most satisfying aspect of this beer is the finish. Lingering chocolate milk finish.

Bottlee thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with hardly any head and a very black body. Aroma has lots of coffee, vanilla, marshmellow and a very pronounced grainy, cereal element. Taste is a ton of cereal, chocolate, and some corn. Syrupy mouthfeel.
