Draft at Sprecher. I’m digging this beer. Not enough to grab a growler of it but very drinkable for the price. Grab a sample on tap before you grab a whole six pack though.

Nice big black pour with a nice off white head. Chocolaty winey aroma with a hint of coffee beans. Taste is thick with a touch chocolate malt. Finishes nice and smooth.

Bottle. Started off good with some aroma you would get from buying a flavored coffee at starbucks. Black body with tan head. Bitterness was the dominate flavor along with some metalic taste. Boddy could use more thickness little thin. Good bitter beer belch in the end.

On tap at Sprecher Restaurant in Middleton, pours black with a thin tan head and a little lacing in the glass, the aroma is roasty with a hint of chocolate, the flavor is pretty disapointing with a little bit of chocolate and malt, but left me wanting so much more out of it, middle of the road brew that is forgettable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 Transluscent charcoal. Subtle, yet complex aroma, which boasts soft vanilla, baker's chocolate, light molasses, coffee bean, earthy hops, and burnt popcorn seed. Velvety carbonation. Firm palate. Charcoal flavors with first sip. Followed by burnt caramel, slight trace of acidity, giving balance to these rich malts, dark grape, charred wood, and mild molasses. Long roasted malts emerge in the finish with a light leafy undertone. A very sophisticated, stylish, and flavorful beauty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz bottle via trade with Duane! - thanks Duane! - Pours black with a pretty nice mocha head that stayed pretty well and laced some on the english pint. Aroma is very subtle roasted malts. Not much there really. Flavor is mild coffee, and bakers chocolate, but as Duane stated this one seems almost overly airy on the palate and over carbonated. Somewhat dry finish. Like most of the other Sprecher brews this just seems subdued and almost watered down in flavor

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 7/15/10. Pint bottle. Opaque with a dark brown hue. Finger width of dissipating khaki head. Aromas of toast, fudge, dark chocolate and graham crackers. Full bodied with a definite dry palate. Modest effervescence that accompanies a bitter dark hop flavor and coffee astringency. Dry but not too bitter. Mild acidity, which is good. This is a smooth sipper, no doubt!
