brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
The beer is black with a thin khaki head. Smells of roasted malt and bitter baking chocolate. A bit of toffee and molasses with a mild coffee aroma and perhaps a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is lightly sweet, mostly from the dark fruit notes, which consists largely of prunes. Fairly heavy on the roasted malt with some coffee and a mild flavor of dark chocolate.

uckelman (403) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Pours opaque dark brown, just a lacing of head. Mild aroma of dark roasted malts. Medium-light body. Fairly lively for having so little head, with noticeable carbonic acid on the finish. Lightly sweet. Not super complex, but very drinkable.

sarauckelman (276) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Dark reddish brown with no head. Not much aroma, a bit roasty. Unusual flavor, sort of like cream soda + cola + a hint of coffee. Thin body, would almost be better with a bit more carbonation.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Yeasty malty aroma. Tan head dissipated to none over clear cola coloured beer. Fairly thick mouthfeel with a subtle fizz on the tongue. Presence of yeast is noticeable alongside the subtly sweet yet bold dark malt flavour. Herbal bitter edge leads to a dry sweet malt finish.
