3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, creamy tan head. Nose held nice notes of cocoa, berry, chocolate and cream, with lighter tones of espresso and nut. Flavor had a cherry coffee tang up front, milk chocolate notes in the middle, and ended with a decent hop bitterness to round it out. Medium bodied, but a tad thin in the mouthfeel, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. If you run across it, then certainly worth a try...

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 Bottle... Black ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. The nutty, earthy nose is of chocolate creme with a hint of black cherry. Perfectly balanced flavor. Roasted maltiness with medium hop bitterness. A touch chocolaty. Thin for the style. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes chocolaty and dry.

Finally, a beer by these guys you can get your teeth into. Very rich, rounded mouthfeel with a pleasureable creaminess in palate. Rich roasted caramel malts...with some strong chocolate, vanilla, and brown sugar action going on. Maybe some espresso, too. Potent hop bite. And a big alcohol presence in the peppery finish.

Dark pour with small light brown head. Aromas of chocolate malts dominate. Coffee chocolate with slight sweetness to balance the bitter throughout the beer. Alcohol well masked by the sweetness. A bit on the thin side, but quite nice.
