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.

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.

On tap at the Sockeye brewpub pouring deep dark brown with tan head. The aroma is a mix of burnt malts and sweet black licorice rolling into chocolate and a touch of caramel. The taste is pretty sweet with malts heading toward some chocolate and dark roasted malts. Into the finish it picks up a pleasing sense of earthiness.
