daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Brown pour, brown head. Sadly this one has some soy notes, but I must say I was able to wade past them and taste what is a very nice beer. Smooth and rich with a nice chocolate and roast backbone. Too bad for the soy.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Dark black with a thin khaki head. Aroma was super dark and sticky with heavy notes of brown sugar, roasted dark chocolate syrup, and a little molasses. Flavor was large and delicious and thick. Lots of dark chocolate cake tones, brown sugar sweetness, a warming boozy tone like rum or bourbon, a little tone of roasted coffee, black licorice/molasses, on a sticky sweet finish that was warm and enticing with a hint of vanilla.
