11.2oz bottle - pours a watery midnight black and a thin brown head. A yummy aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and charcoal. A thin mouthful delivers dry roasty barley, mocha and and a short taste of char.

Had a bottle, pours black brownish, light nose of burnt cocoa. Pretty bland in mouth, mild cocoa and coffee. Not sweet. No personality, no one needs to drink this...

Pours a very dark chestnut brown color that appears black in the glass with a two finger mocha head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with spotty lacing left behind. Much darker than expected, especially the frothy dark beige head. Impressive looking.
Slightly smokey dark malt aroma with a nice balance of roast and sweeter notes. Robust with burnt sugar, oatmeal, toast and espresso bean followed by sweeter, dessert-like coco,ate malt. Subtle earthy hop presence as well.
Medium body with a slight creamy texture but also a bit watery if that makes an sense. Mouthfeel kind of reminds me of nitro. Some dry, roasted bitterness up front but not acrid or unpleasant. Burnt dark malts with hints of bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal and coffee bean followed by subtle resinous hops, lactic cream and lighter malt notes, notably lighter chocolate and caramel sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit off but this beer is well balanced with some nice flavors complimenting each other. This style can be boring but this was pretty complex. I hated the pale ale but this is a good beer from this newish brewery that has me interested in trying more of their offerings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Argonaut (CO). Thanks to Brokensail for pointing out the Israel tick. Poured to lagunitas jar glass. Nose is moderate in cocoa but shows some fudge and maybe some molasses. Faint coffee. Black pour with minimal head. Taste is a showcase of chocolate covered coffee beans with a light vanilla note and a dry coffee finish. Clean, quenching palate with just enough silky mouthfeel to balance it out. A light warming in the wars after a few sips shows some alcohol, but isn’t hot. Overall very good. I would drink again but would like it toned down in the abv. Tends to get a little peppery as it warms from the alcohol.
