12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a deep brown, almost black. Small tan head that quickly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is cocoa and dark malt. Taste is chocolate, caramel, and dark malt, with a sweet note. Just delicious.

Tap ... CO2 pump .... Dark and chocolate with a very nice tar colored head. Retention would be better with nitrogen, but this is what's available at the moment.
There's a malty, coffee aroma followed by a rich chocolate, coffee and malt flavor. The velvet body hangs on the tongue with a linger of smoke. Finishes with an extremely subtle bite in the back of the throat. Nice balance for the style.
I would pair this with a strong aged cheese ... Very nice.

[ Nitro Tap ][ 10oz ][ Draught House Austin TX ][ $5 ][ Goblit ][ 9.3.14 ]
>> Inky pour with mega chocolate milk nitro creme topping. Nose is smokey with cocoa powder, big licorice. Taste begins with a hefty wallop of vanilla extract, smokey dark chocolate, spicy chocolate. Palate is medium bodied and decently rich, but feels papery in the finish.

Trade with roxtersoxter - thanks! Black, thin dense head. Smells like coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Thick, marshmallowy palate. Taste like a s’more, actually - chocolate, coffee, and vanilla, plus a little oak. Nice...

Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and peppers. Pours a dark brown with a non-lasting tan head and nice lacing. Roasty flavors, chocolate, peppers and hints of molasses. Full body and moderate carbonation. Overall, very tasty. Nice juxtaposition of chocolate and peppers - favorable but not over the top on peppers or chocolate.

8/7/2014. On tap. Nitro edition. Black with a creamy tan head. Very smooth with roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Dry bitter finish that just hangs around.

Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Smooth light chocolatey nose, with some alc. fumes. Dark translucent brown, good lacing. Rich chocolate, lactose. Flattens out a bit in mid palate. Cherries, chocolate candy bars, vanilla. Medium body. Tasty. Gets a little thin in flavor a bit too quickly.

Taste was okay.
