Pours pitch black with decent tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and a hint of malt loaf, very slight metallic note coming through at the very end which I think is the wood. Body is amazingly smooth and rich. Soft bubbles but good carbonation for the style. Taste is heavily chocolate but not bitter chocolate, a good quality rich milk chocolate but not overly sweet. Finish develops into coffee and malt biscuits.

12 oz bottle enjoyed with ebone1988 and his bottle. The pour is a lighter black with a thin bubbly collar of dark khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is initially a lot of chocolate. There is a bit of bready cake going on as well as a ton of roast. There is a little woodiness happening as well which is nice. It's not overly complex, and there is a little metallic on the finish, but it's not terrible. The flavor is pretty much all roast. There is a light creaminess and a hint of smoke that pokes through. No cocoa, and there's a light lactose happening on the back end. The mouth feel is pretty damn good. It's thick and viscous with an awesome creamy soft carbonation. There is a lingeringly roasty aftertaste with just a hint of chocolate milk. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1416) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle enjoyed with koleminer20, who had his own. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some wood, slight booze, real nice. Appearance is black, lightbrown head, poured thin. Taste is lots of roasted malt, smoke, wood, chocolate, lactose, but not much else. Mouthfeel is like drinking whipping cream, super light carbonation, but very heavy body with a light chocolate heavy roast aftertaste. Overall, this is slightly disappointing, but still quite good.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2016
Draft at BeerTemple. Cobweb-lacing, light beige, creamy head over a black beer with burgundy edges. Aroma of bitter chocolate, coffee grounds, warm cake, candied fig, blackberry, sweet madera. Sourish fruity onset (blackberries) with a dash of ’green olive umami’ and candied fig sweetness, soft to medium carbo, light metallic feel but not disturbing, smooth and full chocolatey and caramelly malt backbone with nutty and toasted edges, coffee and vanilla accents in the finish, creamy, with some peppery hops and a hint of warming, bourbon-like alcohol. Absolutely lovely, but I did not expect anything less from a collab of Cigar City and Siren.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a very dark brown color, almost pitch black. Aroma was light rum notes, lots of roasted malts, tons of chocolate notes. Flavor was a lot like a rum chocolate cake.

12 oz bottle. Chocolate and sweetness. It tastes just like a Jello pudding pop. Creamy body that’s getting close to imperial stout territory.

(Bottle) Very small dark tan head. Black body Strong aroma of dark bittersweet cocoa. Flavor is simply amazing! Lots of cocoa again. But, this time with a nice sweetness to it, no doubt from the lactose. Finishes off with a woodiness on the palate and aftertaste like I’m sucking on a dry tree branch. Could seriously sip this one all day long!
