4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
tap at Bierkraft - mahogany dark pour. Small tan head. Nose is rich malts and touch of espresso. Dark malts sweet decadent candy, toffee and brown sugar. Bubblegum note and chocolate chip cookie dough, milk chocolate shake. Roasty malts. Smooth, creamy body with the perfect level of carbonation. Sweet into the finish with a light piney finish. And a touch of astringency. Beautiful beer... itís like all my favorite stout qualities packed into one gem of a beer. And barely any perceptible alcohol in the taste. Watch out, beertopia, in Soviet Russia, beer drinks spider!

Pours an opaque darkness. Beautiful brown head. Nose is pretty boozy. Definite chocolate notes on the taste. Very malty. Roasty and just dark. Lives up to its name.

Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours an ultra dark brown with modest-sized brown head. Aroma is full of roasted coffee and chocolate, with some nuttiness and a little dark fruit. Flavour is big roasty cocoa, coffee, hints of cherry and nuts. Body is medium-full. Slick mouthfeel. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a fine-bubbled brown head. It tastes like a big porter w/ a good amount of roast and bitter, dark chocolate. This seems to drink way lighter than itís 10% ABV would have you think. This is really good but might disappoint some folks looking for a huge stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft @ AJís Beer Warehouse - Rochester, NY) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Light aroma of malt and chocolate with a touch of coffee. Flavor is much the same. Roasted chocolate malts with some coffee. A bit thin at the end and the flavor fades a bit too quickly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap a black body with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was a mix of citrus hops, roasted malts and alcohol. There were mild hints of cocoa. Flavor seemed to have a mix of roasted malts and grapefruit. There was a sweetness to it and the alcohol was certainly present. Finish was smooth.
