12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with less than half a finger of nut brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a little dark fruit and some tart cherry skin. A little red wine in there also. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and dark chocolate with a little tart red wine. Full bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a pretty long finish. Overall, pretty good. Something i would gladly drink again.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, roasted malt, light coffee and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, earthiness and light cocoa with smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

pours black with a medium tan head. aroma is malt, toast, hint of coffee. The taste is substantial. Dark malt, bitter coffee. Heavy. Long bittersweet finish. Good beer, but I wouldn’t want to session it all night.

Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head, the aroma has nice notes of light roast with some coffee as well, the flavor has a good amount of coffee at first with some burnt malt and chocolate in the finish, nice mouthfeel, not bad at all.

12 oz. bottle picked up at Woodman’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, a mix of bitter dark chocolate and sweeter, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, decent body, some mild plus bitterness to the finish, the nose is a bit better than the flavor, overall pretty good.

Poured dark black with an off white head. Strong chocolate taste with light coffee overtones. Head adds a great creamy flavor on top of the main taste. Great beer
