Loved this one. Poured a very nice black with a small tan head. The aroma was chocolate, coffee toffee, malt, vanilla. Put all those in the flavor and add a nice bitter hop and you have a wonderfully tasteful brew.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Parks dark brown with a medium sized tan head that leaves good lace. Smells of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate, slightly burned. Tastes about the same. Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, a little smoke, slight sour malts. Pretty tasty, a little too roasted/burned for my taste. Medium/full body, nice, smooth carbonation.

Served on tap at Port OB w/ the Z-Man himself there. The appearance is a rich midnight black. Nice brown head too. The aromas are full of roasted malts and grains, and some ground coffee. The flavors are full of roasted malts, coffee, baker’s chocolate, a little burnt edge to it. The mouth is medium full and very drying but smooth. Very nice brew.
