Bottle at Winking Lizard Tavern (Independence). Pours a dark brown with an off white head. The aroma has some vanilla coming through with some sweet malt The flavor has just a little bit of coffee, vanilla and chocolate with some coffee in the finish.

Strong coffe and vanilla aroma. Robust flavor and very filling. Sweet and some alcohol warming effects. I probably would’ve enjoyed more in the winter

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black body under a minimal fizzy brown head. The nose is on the sweeter side, licorice and burnt caramel mostly, with some roast and coffee. The flavor is fairly sweet as well, a fair amount of dark caramel and licorice. A little too sweet for me actually. Finishes with some burnt malt, caramel, roast, and a little coffee. Medium bodied and a touch clingy with light fizzy carbonation. Ok beer, but not the best among the style.

nick76 (4173) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2014
The aroma is chocolatey with burnt malt, coffee, and brown sugar. The appearance is dark brown with no head. The taste is bitter-sweet and very one dimensional. The palate is average. Overall a bit disappointing but it smells nice.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours nearly flat dark brown with just a hint of a ring of tan. Smell is kind of unattentuated sugars, with mild sweet vanilla and coffee beans. Taste is actually much better than nose. Sweet milkshake like vanilla, light coffee bean, and more sugar. Kind of like an ice coffee. No carb though, but it doesn’t detract too much.

DocJitsu (835) - Florida, USA - APR 8, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Poor head retention. Cigarette smoke, roasted marhamallow, and a pizza place, hard plastic cup nose. Just peculiar. Somewhat creamy and mildly tingly mouthfeel. Ashtray smoky flavor combined with a distinctly separate sweet marhamallow and dark fruit. There’s a bit more than just a note of plastic as well.
