(Bottle) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds chocolate, dark caramel and bark bread up front with undertones of earth, bread dough, dark berries, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and a whisper of smoke and dark berries. Almost milky on the nose. The flavor is light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and light to medium acidic with notes of cocoa, coffee, nuts, dark caramel, brown sugar, milk, touch of Christmas spices, earthy hops and a touch of berries. The mouthfeel is round, soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Sour roasted and earthy hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Thanks to someone for sharing at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate and roasted malt in it. The flavor is very similar. I once again get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, but those notes are complimented by a hint of cream. The beer is very dry overall. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Black, large dishwater like beige head, sparce lacing.   Roasty nose, coffee notes, like cold coffee.   Faint green hoppy note.   Stern roastiness on the tongue, smooth, semi-sweet, some dark chocolate and nuttiness as it warms.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Not as sweet as other examples, or rich with cocoa, but instead a bit more roasty, with a soft hop presense, with lingering dark chocolate and nutiness.   Cold coffee, soft roast, a bit of cream and sugar on the aftertaste.   Decent offering.
