CitrusP (58) - Newcastle, - OCT 23, 2012
Very very roasty aroma, some fresh hop character too. Came up with a fairly and creamy head. Very dominant dark chocolate and espresso character, rich and delicious. Really nicely balanced plate, nice tingly bitterness to it that stops the intensity of the chocolate roastiness from being overwhelming. really enjoyed it

jonsanborn (1) - South Dakota, USA - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
Served at 46F Aroma: roasty Appearance: black, clear, minimal head, brown foam, reminds me of birch beer or a cola. Taste: lightly bitter, medium sweetness, Palate: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish Overall: I enjoyed this beer on the whole, but I would call it average. My first taste had a distinct flavor of birch beer, which I believe was induced by the appearance.
