Aromas of oak, blackberry jam, coffee, and cocoa. Taste is very similar: sweet dark fruits, oak, light roasted dark cocoa malts, fudge. Finish has some crisp balsamic vinegar notes. I’m surprised that there is no alcohol taste considering how high the ABV is.

BuckeyeBoy (5831) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out a dark brown topped with a small tan head. Nose is roast malts chocolate coffee brown sugar molasses. Taste is more of the sweetness roast malts chocolate coffee brown sugar and some odd end.

RLiddell (112) - Valrico, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle mules back from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Nose is pretty weak, a touch of roasted malt. Taste is a bit more memorable, with bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Decent beer.

Advocate_Ames (569) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours dark with a mocha brown foam head that laces my glass. The aroma is malty, with buttery caramel, some smoke, chocolate, minor lactose notes, and roasted coffee. Tasting, I noticed a blend of chocolate and coffee bitterness. There was a nice mixture of sweetness and bitterness too. I enjoyed the coffee and chocolate flavor with a good malty backbone. As the finish fades in flavor and the booze comes through it was very pleasant and welcoming. Overall a damn good beverage and it was very drinkable.

JStax (5088) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Draft sample. The beer is a dark brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has a lot of sweet chocolate and a complementary level of coffee roast. The taste is sweet and chocolaty. The coffee comes through more as an afterthought and in the finish. Bigger body and a moderate carbonation.

Oly (62) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pours dark black with big tan head. Aroma is yeast, roast coffee, chocolate, caramel/burnt sugar, and a touch of vanilla. The bitter roasted coffee dominates the taste, and it’s not balanced well enough by the malt. Palate is smooth, but is a bit too carbonated and thin for my liking. Solid effort, but not very memorable.

On tap at HOTD. Pours a jet black color with a medium grey head. A big sweet toffee and chocolate nose. Light dark coffee, some nutty notes, caramel, roast, and licorice. Solid brew.
