Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Dark pour, nice head and really good lacing. Funky aroma...lagerish and a bit unpleasant. Lots of chocolate flavor, obviously...was described by the bartender as a chocolate lager. Some sourlike lactic flavor, which I hate. Okay.

decaturstevo (4979) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Black pour with creamy tan head and lace. Light chocolate and coffee. Chocolate, roasted malt, with a good malt bitter. A tad thin but good carbonation.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Tap at pub. Appearance was very dark black and clearish, light beige head. Aroma is of light roasted malt and mild bitter notes. Taste is pretty tame. Not too roasty, not too bitter, just middle of the road. Balance was a little strange as well. Body was medium. Overall, not a very memorable brew.

Kinz (3274) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Faint roast aroma. Flavor is lightly roasty with a bit of caramel. Fairly clean. Black with brown at edges. Not bad. As it warmed, some faintly floral hops became evident, and the bitterness stepped up a bit as well.
