Draught @ the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Rated on 20.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, tobacco and ash. Flavour is really rich with roasted malts, tobacco, grassy bitterness, dark chocolate and mellow caramel notes. Rich mouthfeel with a malty, slightly dry finish. Great.

sistinas (94) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 28, 2012
On tap at Russian River. Poured a very dark brown, had a finger of head when I got it. Aroma of malts and mild coffee, had a lot more coffee and some bitter chocolate along with sweet mildly roasted malts when I drank it. Medium bodied, not too carbonated. Good solid beer but nothing special.
