brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Black in color with a small tan head. Damn this is buttery. Roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and some graham cracker. A little bit of toffee, some ash, and maybe bandaids. The flavor is no better. Tons of butter to go along with the roasted malt and chocolate. Strangely smokey, but some toffee and graham cracker sweetness.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2013
50cl bottle pours with a dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up some malt balls, dark roasted coffee, dark roasted malts, a touch of burnt malts as well as some black licorice. The taste is similar with a mix of malt balls, black licorice, dark roasted coffee and nearly burnt maltiness. I’m not getting really any chocolate notes.

Black color with tan sheen. Nice milk chocolate, nutty, graham cracker aromas. medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Dry chocolatre, medium roast coffee-mocha flavors--decent

Landmonger (156) - USA - JUL 27, 2012
Poured from a bottle with tan head which dissipates quickly with only minor traces left, aroma is chocolate and the taste is overpoweringly citrus, minor carbonation, thin on the palate,...

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle from Richard. Thanks. Pours out a dark brown color with a tan head on it. Smell is full of chocolate; not many hops. Some alcohol noted but not alot. Good stuff, probably better than it is rated. Rich in flavor and kind of sweet. Not bad

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours from the 500 ml bottle a very dark red brown with a creamy tan head and moderate lacing. Nose is first chocolate with a sniff of citrus. Medium in body. Creamy mouthfeel. The chocolate dominates the flavor with lots of burnt malts and good bitterness. The finish shows some coffee and more bitterness. This is an exceptionally tasty one.

Pint bottle from Hayduke. We enjoyed a bottle together via facebook chat. That is such a fun way to enjoy traded beers! This had red during the pour but little in the glass. A cool 3 tone tan head lasted nicely and left some lacing. A big chocolate nose is sweet, rich, and nice. But it is not really tasted in the beginning. Instead it starts out grassy and swampy with citrus hops. To be honest, I just finished a salad with jalapenos and my palate was not ideal. However, towards the end chocolate stepped up and at the finish and it became more balanced. Then on the last sip coffee was tasted. This was quite tasty and kept surprising me. Fun!

Stevowp8 (2) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JAN 25, 2012 does not count
Its aroma is very pleasing when poured and its got that wonderful dark color and brown head. Its very hood on initial taste but doesn?t have that great of an aftertaste. Overall i?m glad i tried it but I won?t try it again.

SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle from BevMo: Poured with a decent amount of foamed head while the liquid was a dark pitch black color. The aroma is robust and smells of roasted black coffee bean. The flavor is similar except for a richer roasted down profile. The palate is fizzy and has a heavy presence of carbonation.
