Aroma lacks the complexity of others...this one is all maple and molasses. Amazing blood red body with a thick khaki head that leaves fairly quickly but provides an obvious reminder in the glass. Smoke, brown sugar, and roasted nuts are the backbone to this brew. Creamy, full-flavored, and rich...thumbs-up!!!

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 Pours dark, dark brown with a thick tan head. Strong aroma of caramel, toffee, and chocolate. Initially, chocolate dominates, moving through lighter malts and finishng with some bitterness. Very thick mouthfeel. Another very nice offering from Oskar Blues.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with thin tan head. Nice malty aroma with a nice nutty presence as well as some chocolate, caramel and hops. Flavor very similar to aroma with a lot of roasted nut maltiness, chocolate, caramel, toast and dark fruit with a nice hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz (US) can with no expiration date or lot number that I could see. I picked up something from this brewery before. It is unusual to see craft beer in a can but Oskar Blues Brewery seems to have a lot of faith in the packaging. This one pours a very dark brown-almost black with a heavy amount of puffy, beige head. The aroma is an odd mix of malts, chocolate, and baked bread. Heavy mouth feel. It is incredible how much chocolate is in the flavor! It’s like drinking a fudge candy bar with alcohol. It most definitely is unique.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with just a slight cream-colored head. A dark coffee malted aroma. A lot of coffee in the flavor as well. Molasses, caramel, and a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. A nice burnt bitter in the finish, but just enough to balance things out. Very solid mouthfeel as well.
