Growler. Rating #12. Dark brown pour, almost black with a very light beige head. Light roast and a nice sweet toastiness. Flavor is similar to the aroma, light roast with a bit of an underlying sweetness. Nice beer. (1951)

On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium tan head. A big nose of sweet caramel, toasted malts and light fruit. The flavor is very clean with rich fruity malts, light smoke, caramel. Very big flavors. Nice.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap at Beer Belly. Pours with a near black body with a tan head that leaves good lace. Aromas are lightly roasty, bready and a bit grainy. Minimal hop character, clean otherwise. Flavors show a lightly bitter balance with a mild bitterness overall. Roasty, toasty, light caramel. Pretty dry. Medium bubbles, creamy, medium weighted mouthfeel. Well made.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
A: The beer pours nearly black with a creamy tan head sitting on top. S: Smells of coffee and coffee ground with a nice roasted malt base to it. Light sweetness in the form of toffee and molasses with some dark chocolate/cocoa powder in there as well. A mild ash note is detectable, unfortunately. T: Really a solid flavor. Roasted malts and coffee are the primary flavor components. Plenty of dark chocolate with a subtle molasses, licorice, and toffee flavor. Light earthy hops and minimal bitterness. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: One of the better Taps beers I’ve had. Really easy to drink.

Rating from almost a year ago. On tap; poured a dark brown with not much head. Aroma of roasted malt and fruit, with a dash of cocoa. Flavor was solid; slightly sweet, caramel, roasted malt and fruit. Solid.
