Dark brown, almost black pour with medium sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee and chocolate. Taste of unsweetened chocolate, burnt malts and hint of coffee. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel and bitter finish.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Poured nearly black with thick, fluffy, mocha head and very thick lacing. Smells like it is twice the strength it actually is. Very boozy. Taste is mild chocolate, raisin, booze.

Ferris (8489) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft - Liquorice roasted malts, coffee and chocolate bitterness. I even get a bit of dark fruit, maybe even some cherry. Jet black with a brown thin head. Sweet bitterness throughout. Liquorice and dark chocolate dominate with a bit of alcohol in the finish. Nice but definitely a short glass is all that is required.

rosenbergh (8880) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Draught at the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Black colour with small tan head. Gingerbread, xmassy spices, roasted malt, some balacing hops and liquorice in aroma. Very roasted malt, ashy bitterness, bitterish hops and mild liquorice dryness in flavour. Very dry and roasty flavour. Some sweetness could balance this a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the brickstore. An incredible dark Christmas drink perfect for the time of year. Little bit of vanilla lots of roasty malt and bittersweet chocolate. Smooth and well hidden alcohol. Pours black with a decent tan head.

Draft at CK. Rich black pour with a thick tan head. Nose and flavor bring stunning roasted malt, touches of char, bitter dark chocolate, and hints of plum and fig. Actually reminds me of a slightly less complex and less big Expedition; really smooth and drinkable on the palate. I dig this.
