Aroma is malts, fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is malts, notes of coffee and chocolate, fruit and a tangy/acidic/bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Burnt brown with red hue. Half inch head,gone shortly to a ring with scattered lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate with mild coffee roast,some earthy/fruit berry.
Taste: Same as aroma,smooth a little oily,somewhat mild taste but with a kinda piney bittering. A bit yeasty, roast shows more on the finish. Good but somewhat average maybe more.

Thanks to schmoopsbeer for sending this out my way. Served in a tulip.
Pours very dark brown with a two-finger tan head that fades quickly to a collar. The nose carries a bit of roast and chocolate with some mild coffee in the background. Flavor is similar with more roast, and also a slight bit of black licorice. Medium body with a quite dry finish. Decent enough.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clearish brown, creamy fine tan head. Nose of cream, toasty brown sugar, nutty, juicy dark fruit, Melba toast. Taste is nutty, smoke, cream, bacon fat. Weird taste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber pours pretty darn dark with a mocha tan sort of head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some burnt malts, chocolate and then a red wine like tartness. The taste, sadly, is the same. I get roasty to chocolate to burnt malts followed by tart tannin red wine like notes. Not that great.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Some nuttiness in the aroma, Iím surprised that this is considered to be the best of their beers at this time. I found it the least drinkable. quite a bit of malt but also stringy and unfortunately a bit buttery sour. Damaged I hope.
