Big black pour at GABF. Aroma is big and bold, loads of chocolate, hints of coffee, some roast. Flavor is sweet and rich, big and chocolatey heaven!

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This brew is brownish-black with a medium tan head and small patches of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and malt. Full-bodied and very chocolatey with notes of coffee and roast malt. The finish is smooth mocha goodness. Good beer all around.

Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. One of my favorite beers of the festival, had outstanding chocolate/bourbon like flavors.

Sampled at Winterfest 2012. Pours black brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is awesome chocolate vanilla and roasted malt with faint scents of coffee too. Taste is so rich and chocolatey with hints of dark fruit and roasted malt and coffee. Palate is full and rich with a chalky dry finish. Awesome, really hope I can get a growler of this stuff!

GTMW 2011. Poured a dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt aroma. Solid bittersweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

I am updating a very backed up beer pad dating back a whole year. This was, as I noted, my favorite beer of GABF 2010. I wrote, "the baddest beer on the planet. Nuts and earth the whole way! dark chocolate taste, berries everywhere. So awesome. Roast, caramel, vanilla, burnt, BOOM!" As you can tell I was excited and can’t wait to drink this one again.

awesome stone growler... light black body, shiny... the nose is too light, a bit of chocolate, nice just not enough going on... the flavor is also on the lighter side but great, light chocolate, watery chocolate not a milky note, easy to drink, can’t believe this is 9%... really good and worth trying

Tap at GTMW. Pours to a pitch black body with a dark brown head. The aroma was quite nice with lots of chocolate syrup, chocolate powder, coffee, and rich roasted malts. The flavor was absurdly chocolatey and roasted. Very heavy beer all around. The palate was thick and syrupy. Was a nice beer, but a bit too much at an outdoors festival.
