Tasted from a bomber. It poured an opaque brown with a lasting, frothy, light brown head and minimal lacing. Had a pungent aroma of roasted malt and coco. Taste of roasted malt with a hint of liquorice.

Dark pour with a medium tan head. Very roasty coffee and chocolate aroma, but not a lit of complexity or depth. Thick palate and a strong bitter aftertaste. Very good beer.

Growler from kbutler1. Huge thanks Kevin! Pours black with a half finger of thick tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with huge Roasty notes and a decent bit of dark fruit. Taste is light bitter and follows aroma. Loads of coffee and chocolate. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. I could drink this everyday.

Growler into tulip. Minneapolis.
Appearance: dark black with tan head. Good retention. Lacing in the glass.
Aroma: chocolate milk, coffee, caramel, alcohol.
Taste: slightly bitter, but very smooth. Nice.
Palate: medium body, very smooth an daily texture. Shorter finish.
Overall: a very drinkable beer. Nice flavor and texture. Lacks some depth, and richness. A little too short on the finish. Still very nice

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate and coffee tones
Some moderate bitterness which adds to the flavor
Not the most inventive of all the beers at steel toe
Go for a Douglas or a provider!

Tap poured at Pizza Luce Hopkins. Dark black ale with an aggressive roasted coffee aroma. Clings well to the glass and visually is the perfect winter accompaniment. Taste is heavy bitter but slight undertone of chocolate. Aftertaste is pretty coffee-centric but overall a pretty good local brew. Some might say a dissent option.
