This ber smelled soo good but the flavor was a bit flat for me. It was very dark, almost black. I had it a couple days ago so I donít remember it that well. All I remember is that it smelled amazing but didnít taste good. eh

Decent but not much to it. Pours a warery black with light tan head. Not much arms, just slight chocolate and grain. Taste is watered down chocolate, hints of burnt coffee, and grain. Very light body and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black. Small but lasting beige head, some drippy lace. Aroma is roasty, bittersweet, chocolate, bit of coffee. Flavor is much the same but the roasted malt backs down a little and gives way for more hop character. Flavor is Medium body. Finish is short, dry, light bitterness. Solid beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Middleton Pub - Pours deep cola pour with a thin tan head. Nose is chalky and dry roast, with espresso and some milkiness. Light milky notes in the taste, with medium char roast, charcoal, and some coffee grounds. Light smoke and an odd minty note on the finish. Biting carbonation and a thinnish body. This is a style that I usually like, but this one was just weird.

Draft at Sprecher. Iím 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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: poured a black brown with tan head, lacked a bit of the creaminess Iím used to with dry stout. Aroma was roasted malt. Taste was bitter bakers chocolate and full roasted malt. Could be an excellent beer, but presently average.
