Sample at the brewpub on 8/4/10. Darkest brown/black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasty to the point of ashy with not much else going on. Flavor is equally roasty and ashy with a bit of molasses sweetness in there too.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Source. Aroma is malted milk balls (whoppers) with caramel. Flavor is again the Whoppers candy with a light bitter chocolate malt help balance the candy flavor. Im not sure what is a tad off with it. But other then the thinner body the bitterness is off setting. Not in a Black IPA kind of way either.
