Black with a small light brown head. Big aroma of chocolate, bready and wort-ish malt, caramel, figs. Sweet, mostly chocolate flavour, with a hint of roast in the finish. Silky smooth and silky sweet and slightly boring as such.

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.
