On tap at the brewpub in Ybor City. Coal black viscous pour with a thick, creamy off-white head that leaves several rings of thick lacing. Aroma has some faint wisps of vanilla if a bit subdued. Flavor is full bodied with some hints of vanilla, brandy and a back end of marshmallows. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Very enjoyable.

Deep black with notes of heavy malt roast and cocoa nibs. Deep malt flavors show the cocoa and espresso flavors and mute the alch somewhat.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Sample at brewpub. Pours a nice deep dark ambery brown not quite black- great lasting head. Aroma is sharp roasted malts lots of roasted nuts, and a good chocolate donut aroma. flavor is a bit syrupy sweet at first but dries out and becomes a nutty dried light burnt toast and chocolate character- with a roasted finish- pretty smooth overall. Nice.
