Chocolate with a little coffee. Sweet toasty malt. Very much reminds me of Killians Stout.

Black. Hint of choc but mainly coffee but not hard grain. More like the roast of the beans. Not a bad beer.

Dark brown pour with a thick mocha head. Aroma is chocolatey, coffee, yeasty, bready. Flavor is very chocolatey too. Mild roast. Some raisin. Sweet bready finish.

It may be true to style, but it’s much too sweet for me--almost treacly sweet. Cut down the sweetness, and the flavor would be superb--a nice dark, brown ale with a slightly bitter finish.

Bottle: Poured black with foamy head. Smell is toasted chocolate. I was surprised by how heavy the beer is. Literally it feels heavy in the glass and it is thick is my mouth. Most black ales I have tried are much thinner than this one is. It feels thick and heavy in my mouth but washes away like water. The taste is a little chocolate with a little roasty aftertaste to it. Overall a really nice beer even though the taste could use some help.

January 2012. From bottle. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Caramel, roasted malt, dark fruit and yeast aromas. Good balance and complexity.

Tasty ale...like a thinner version of a porter. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is cocoa, dark chocolate fruit, and some coffee or malt. Yum.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There are some chocolate and nutty notes. A slight fruity character that works well with the malts. The body is a bit thin.
