Holy shit, I’m the 5th Pennsylvanian to have rated this stuff! We PA guys take no prisoners. Thanks to an anonymous benefactor for this one. The pour was obsidian with almost no head other than a few tan spots. The aroma was of big roasty malt, molasses, some tobacco. The flavor was very malty with a decent fruit component, molasses, and some chocolate. Very palate dense with very little carbonation. This one is great!

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during tap takeover. It pours a dark brown colour with a ring of brown bubbles. Sweet aroma of chocolate, cream, coffee, and dried fruits. Taste is chocolate, bitter coffee, roasted malts, and a nice bitter hop bite. Toffee and vanilla swirl from time to time with hints of caramel. Great one.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. A black one, topped by a tan head. The aroma is intense, with salty licorice, molasses, roasted malts, hints of bonfire and coffee. Nicely bitter in the flavor, with the same found in the aroma. Full body, quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. Pretty nice this one. 130813
