Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma seems chocolate and dark treacle. Med + body. Flavor is some chocolate and some dark malt that might have treacle (or dark fruit with something sweet?) Really tasty.

On tap at the Red Hot. Black, thin tan head. Scent is oak, dark chocolate and some alcohol. Taste is a little malty. Kind of bland actually.

Draft sampler at brewery. As second runnings of berserker, this is still black, thick and rich. Aroma of raisin and coffee and spice. Taste is same, with some hops/black malt bitterness on the end. Not as thick as berserker, of course, but still a respectable stout in its own right. Iíd drink this every night.

Damn, thatís a HUUUGE small beer! Draft at the brewery. Black. Itís freaking black. Still. Nice clean (weird descriptor but it is) aroma with chocolate and dark fruits. Great flavor, really unique. Soft anise notes, milk/dark chocolate, and blackberry. A notable lack of bitterness, which is a good thing. Smooth, silky palate with medium body. Great beer.

Pitch black color, dark brown color. Tons of bourbon, molasses, maple syrup. The mouth is very full, sweet, rich maple, molasses, truffles, bourbon, tounge numbing, dark fruit in te mouth. Really warming finish, with lingering truffles, molasses and maple finish. Big beer, very complex.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at the source... Pours a silky solid stout black hue, pretty thorough throughout and topped with a creamy khaki head... Light roast and cocoa aroma, slight tints of yeastiness. Black licorice. Pretty straightforward ... Milky, smooth chocolate and mild roast flavors upfront. Light bitterness in the backend. Touch of chalk and light smoke coming through late and through the finish. A touch of darken fruitiness also surfaces.
