This is pretty well done, if a touch imbalanced. Lots of roast, a sharp bitter malt aroma. Dark chocolate but no sweetness. Pours black with mocha head and decent lacing. Medium bitter finish. Bottle from Total Wine.

Dark brown with drown head. Strong roasted malt chocolate aroma. Bottle says ist 8.5% but to me if tastes like 5-6%. A hint of sweetness, some chocolate and a hint of earthy hops. Mocha (chocolate-coffee) finish with lingering roasted malt flavor.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark mahogany with a frothy light tan head with some broken lace. The aroma is light sweet caramel malt with a little smoke. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a smooth, rich chewy roasted malt, light hop, light smoky liqorice bitter palate. Moderate to full bodied with soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 2/22/15
Aroma: The nose is roasted malt forward, some light smoke, wood notes, and a bit of tobacco
Appearance: Pours a dark brown-black color with a foamy light brown head and drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is dry and roasted malts, light smoke/tobacco, and a mid-bitter close
Palate: The body is medium-full, not overly heavy, with a soft carbonation, and a fairly dry finish
This is actually a quite enjoyable, dry, and fairly easy drinking example of the style. There’s a lack of sweetness that works nicely here. Dry and enjoyable.

Black. Very heavy roasted, but surprisingly smooth and the roasted, almost burnt malt flavors are not overpowering notes of coffee and chocolate. Good palate, and some sugar.
