Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cola, toffee, prunes, chocolate, soy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by an astringent bitterness. Overall this is a decent brew.

pours black with a thin beige head and no lacing. lactic and slightly coppery aroma. taste is rich with chocolate and mint. Finish has notes of milk and more metal. Dessery and pleasing but a tad superficial. I like the broad strokes but the details are missing.

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.
