Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Had this one on-tap at City Bev in town. The pour created a massive tan head on top that lingered for most of the session. The frothy cap produced aromas of roasted malt, chocolate powder, and a slightly chicory fade on the finish. Nice toasty nose. The mouth on this one is a bit thin and lacking in carbonation. A little too slick for me, but that could be the fault of the tap, not the beer itself. The flavors are as good as anticipated. Big roasty notes that aren’t charring or unpleasant in any way. Mild chocolate flavors add a touch of sweetness that prevents this beer from becoming too woodsy and burnt. Good balance of flavors going on. There is a slight metallic finish, but it fleets away quickly. This was good, but I’d love to revisit this is in bottle form to see how the mouth is remedied, if at all. This keeps reminding me why ME is one of my fave NC breweries.

While the aroma and color are barely there, the flavor definitely is there and impresses. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at lucky 12. Pours black with a small tan head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has roasted malt and milk chocolate notes. The taste is bitter chocolate and coffee grind.

nimbleprop (5085) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2014
12oz bottle at Red Hen in DC. Pours a deep brown with some creamy, thin, off white head. Nose is alright, some cocoa pods, some gristy character, a little dusty, some caramel. Flavor follows right along, sweet malt, caramel, a little cheap rootbeer, some chocolate too, light bread crust. Watery finish. Unoffensive.
