Thanks to Spence for sharing this, and word to Jackie-Os for the continual Zappa love. Deep and, yes, oily look to it, not quite at the motor oil end of the spectrum but getting there. Moderate carbonation and café au lait head. Nose is pretty inviting, with hints of anise among the usual dark roasts, char, and bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, but nothing that interferes too much. Taste is a bit better than the fairly by-the-numbers nose, and is more like a nice Belgian chocolate and less like burning.

22 ounce bottle that pours midnight black with very thin tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, choclate, nuts, and vanilla. Flavors of coffee and choclate at first,, as beer warms, more of the walnut flavors come through. Really good beer.

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of malt, chocolate, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Had trouble picking up the walnuts, but am sure that they added to the unique flavor. Very good.

Huge thanks to Ryan011235 on BA for hooking up this tick. Pours black and rather thick with a thick tan head good lacing. Serious viscosity. The aroma is nice and rich. Big roast and nuttiness, anise, and hops. The flavor is also rich. Big intense coffee and roast, dark chocolate, walnuts, molasses, and piney hops. Extremely full and heavy on the mouthfeel with lower carbonation. A little too heavy for my tastes, as well as the tastes of most others who shared this. Intense beer, and a pretty good one. Not all hype.
