BeerandBlues2 (11063) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with a small, frothy, dark brown head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (molasses, chocolate, toffee), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, pine), average yeast (leather) with notes of raisin, plum, smoke, tar, and vanilla. Full bodied, oily texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.

mcberko (10577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2011
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp, pours black with a tiny tan head. Aroma of dark sweet cocoa, oatmeal, and slightly bitter coffee. Flavour reveals much espresso than anything, with bitter unsweetened dark cocoa underneath, and a pronounced roastiness, and a slightly burnt finish. The sweetness comes through more as it warms. Soft, uncarbonated palate. Most wonderful.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Well I had to go to Vermont to find this in the bottle at a local shop in Stowe. Rating #600. This is a kick ass beer. Pours a jet black with a nice foamy brown head. Aroma is(shocking)all chocolate. I also smell a hint of coffee and maybe some molasses. Taste is dark chocolate, dried dark fruit, coffee and some molasses hints on the nose too. I truly enjoyed this from start to finish.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Bottle… Post RBSG ’08 O-Town/Vero Beach Throwdown Chapter 8… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Good retention. Simple, straight-forward aroma and flavor… dark, bitter chocolate nibs and cocoa powder. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. Chocolaty, bitter finish. Thanks to growler for sharing the bottle!
