This was a joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This beer poured from the 12 oz can a dark red appearing brown with a very robust tan head and light lacing. nose of roasted malts showing coffee, chocolate and a hint of smoke. Light to medium body with kind of a thin mouth feel. the flavor was rich with chocolate forward, and some coffee, toffee, and a tiny bit of what Dave called Swampy. Good description. This beer was well balanced and easy drinking. Lots to like here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This poured with a nice big tan head and was dark brown with some red. The aroma was chocolate with some kind of swampy note. I never could identify it. The flavor was also fairly soft chocolate in front. Very light hop notes were a bit sour. It is earthy. That unidentified aroma is also tasted and remained unidentified. This was a nice beer that could have been a stout with the fairly rich feel.
