22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small head. Aroma of espresso, licorice, roasted malt and grass. Flavour is much the same, with a burnt finish - there is something off about it. Not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pitch black with an enormous frothy pale brown head with great retention. Roasty but oddly fresh head - like spinach or other dark greens and a curious spiciness. Milky chocolate and light citrus upfront, espresso very present. Toasty oats, and I do think I can taste quinoa in there, just a light nuttiness. Creamy moderately thick body with appropriate carbonation. This is a real treat - complex and unique but very quaffable. like an oatmeal cookie.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a decent beige head and a chocolate aroma. The flavor is heavy duty chocolate with a coffee chaser and a dry finish.

Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours very dark brown with tan head. The aroma is a rich mix of coffee, chocolate, some roasted malts, spices and black licorice. The taste begins pretty darn roasty and building up toward burnt malts, dark roasted coffee and then chocolate. Nice stuff with loads of pleasing flavors.

Pint at the brewpub. Looks like a dark beer indeed. Pretty close to black body with a tall fluffy head. Aroma is powerul and dense. Lots of chocolate, nuts, espresso, toffee. Very roasty, smoky, ashy flavor with a semisweet body. Plenty of chocolate flavor too. I like it.
