On tap at the Sunnyside Mcmenamins. Pours black with a nice tan head. Tons of chocolate in the aroma with a slight coffee hint to it as well. Taste was rich and smooth with a nice bitterness toward the end to balance. Good chocolate tastes and a decent thickness which is a big step up from most mcmenamins brews iíve had.

Sampled @ Kennedy School. Deep brown, very smooth initially, then some harsh hops, some whiskey qualities as well, a little milky malt flavors up front, with a long, buzzing finish. Decent, but not robust or complex at all. Plain, really.
