4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was the Nitro version, which really made it good. Roasted malt, coffee and some sweetness on the nose. Very dark with light creamy head. Very creamy and heavy. Low carbonation, which was expected. This added to the smooth character. High roasted malts, coffee, almost burnt but not in a bad way. I liked this better than the canned version. It also hid the alcohol better.

12oz can 4/2/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-38° in Trappist Glass-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same with more coffee and chocolate on the back end. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draught at Moses Rose’s Bar in San Antonio. Very dark brown/black colour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and coffee. The taste is rather sweet and creamy and has a very strong hint of coffee. Not particularly bitter. A little thin and watery (surprisingly, given the ABV), but fairly drinkable.

It’s dark like motor oil. The chocolate aroma hits you immediately. This brew has a smooth rich chocolatey flavor with a good roasted taste.
