3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours really really really dark brown. Some slight caramel notes on the nose. Big flavor profile. I get some smokiness but also some raisin and licorice notes. Thin on the palate easy to drink finishes clean. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Small patchy lacing on the glass. Roasty malt and coffee aroma. Medium body with a sweet roasted malt character and flavors of coffee, chocolate and hops. The finish is sweet and toasty with a mild coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draught in Brewpub: This one pours a very dark, opaque brown color. There was a small tan head that didn’t linger very long. A bit of a lighter aroma. Some coffee, roastiness, floral hops and a hint of chocolate. The taste is also good. Some roastiness, coffee and a touch of chocolate. Very smooth ans easy drinking.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Rivertown Pub this beer poured a dark black color with a medium sized dark brown head that lingered. The aroma was malty and toasty chocolate. The flavor was toasty, malty and sweet with fairly strong chocolate and a hint of coffee. Underneath were elements of malted milk and bitter floral hops. The finish was long, toasty and malty. The body was fairly thick and smooth. Very good.
