It poured a large head and it was dark brown in color. It had a very smooth taste with a touch of chocholate flavor.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - APR 3, 2006
12oz bottle: Aroma is malty with a floral hop whiff. A great smooth choco-coffee flavor with a fruit hop bitterness. A medium body and velvet mouthfeel coupled with creaminess make this highly drinkable. A small smoky element comes out toward the end. Excellent.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark cherrywood color with beige head. The aroma is malty and resiny, with a hint of coffee and oak. The flavor comes off a little sweet at first, but gets ashy pretty fast. Some roastiness finds its way in there, too, and the hops make themselves known in the finish. Not bad.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours almost opaque (the deepest ruby-brown), with a chocolatey floral bouquet. The head diminished quickly, but left a very nice ring lace spiderwebbing the glass. Richly definitive bitter-smoky roasted notes, leaving a perky bitter-coffee finish. Feels comfortable, rich and smooth within the mouth, and would welcome another if so desired.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2006
Had one of these from a bottle last night. Nose of espresso & flowers. Opens up to more chocolate notes after breathing for a bit. Pours black with garnet highlights. The Large tan frothy head is stiff, mostly lasting, and leaves decent lace. The flavor is sweet finishing brilliantly with a roasted bitterness. The medium body is lively and dry.

Dark pour and tall tan head that faded faster than expected. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is that of a bitter chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable texture.
