kambei70 (588) - - MAY 17, 2014
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a small, dense dark khaki head with brown and ruby at the edge. Aroma is grainy with a little soy/Worcestershire (kind of a sweet BBQ sauce. Some over-ripe dark fruit and roasted malt. A little chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla and cherry up front, then fades into a sweet roasted malt and molasses flavor that is surprisingly grainy. Ends with with a sharp coffee bitterness with notes of grassy and floral hops. Velvety smooth, thick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koskela (287) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pure chocolate with a hint of grape come from this thick dark brown brew with no head. Its a very full bodied brew with no alcohol taste or much of a burn but is extremely chocolately with a hint of smoke or a roasted flavor. There is not much carbonation but a great brew overall.

Sample at Blackback, pours black with coffee colored head, very pronounced and lasting lacing. Aromas and flavor of roasted barrel, booze, dark fruits, molasses, cocoa, and tons of complex wood. Finishes like a nice bourbon or other tasty whiskey. Medium to full in body, pretty sticky. Nice!
