Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Dark blackish pour. Lightly roasty, grainy, maybe some nut character. Sweet, caramel. No real nutty or toasty character.

Pour is black with a finger-wide tan head. Aroma of peat, coffee, dark malt, light hops, and milk chocolate. Flavor of chocolate syrup, smoke, coconut, slight vanilla, and roast. Finish is a bit hoppier than the body.

Dark motor oil pour. Little head. Little worried about the smell because it is slightly sour. Other hints of chocolate and cocoa. Very sweet. Slight fruit taste. Might be on the verge of going bad. Lots of cocoa flavor. Mild almond. Not getting much coconut. Maybe that is the slight tart fruity taste and aroma.

Bottle. Pours black with small amount of tan head. Aroma is coconut, dark chocolate, trace vanilla. Taste is distinctly nutty - I couldnít discern "almond" from any other nut, but I liked it. Coconut is not as prevalent as I had hoped but itís there. Plenty of chocolate and vanilla to round it out. Heavy on the palate. This one will keep you warm in the winter!

First beer for me in 6 weeks. Chocolate nibs, marshmallow, and cashews on the nose and in the taste. Pretty good.

Pours a jet black with a tan head. Strong aromas of caramelized nut sweetness. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of nuts, marshmallow, sticky sweet fudge (packers?), and moar nuts. Deez nuts! You ever had a Beer Nut brand peanut? Thatís what this tastes like, in liquid form with added chocolate and marshmallows. Sweet. Borderline cloying but easy to drink and high boost. I liked it.

Shared with Zach on a hot miserable steamy humid Friday afternoon on the patio with a Cuban, pours a dark black pour with a java colored head. Nose is malty, with coffee and some sweetness. Taste is malty with cacao, mocha and roasted nuts, and is smooth and velvety. Finishes on the same tasting notes and just bathes the palate with smoothness and ease. Is there a flawless beer ? Thanks Archer, and thank you Pipeworks, amazing what one can miss without Pipeworks. Quaff Score 10 / 10

Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and sweet aroma of cocoa, vanilla, and coconut. Taste is delicious, tons of complex flavor, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruits, coconut that really comes throb in the finish, and coffee while creamy with almond milk flavor and a sweet, vanilla cocoa finish. Great brew

Pours black with a tan head. Subtle sweet aroma. Sweet coffee taste with coconut undertones. Bitter coffee bite in the after taste. Really like this beer, but at 10.5%, something to be savored.
