Midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a pitch jet black with an average (1-2 finger) light cocoa brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and small collar with poor runny lacing. The aroma was very robust of a burnt biscuit mat, light resin hops and a strong earthy yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla, a mild smokiness and a slight alcohol tinge. The taste was bitter sweet with a nice malty feel and had notes of bitter chocolate and molasses from the beginning, progressing slightly into a purely bitter taste with a huge coffee presence and a mild smoky finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow with a bold smooth bitter coffee taste left to linger for quit a while. Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, oily texture and a solid medium carbonation. Overall this was a boldly robust brew with a strong bitter mocha / coffee taste that is offset slightly by a mild sweetness, and was done very well may I say. Making this a very enjoyable tasty brew with a superb drinkability...

slowrunner77 (9922) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Heavily roasted and showing at least all of it’s 7% abv. Drinks big, for better or worse. There was an offness to the bottle that I can’t quite name - ever so slight astringency perhaps? - that didn’t belong. Good, but I think it can be better. Hope to try on tap one day.
