UPDATED: JAN 3, 2015 Black stout, brown head with some lace, yeast nose with a bit of roast, flavor is yeast and some dark roast, tastes like homebrew - very yeasty and also like it might have an infection, sort of like if I kept this in storage and drank it in 6 months it would be sour

If look a could kill. Thick. Huge creamy tan brown head.
Smells like coffee chocolate. some acidity. Very well balanced.
Taste is like the smell. Hops come through a bit on the finish. As does the acidity. Chocolate is subtle. Coffee... Not so much. Boozy.
Palate is lighter. Acidic. Lots of hops.
Overall looks better than it taste. Not a bad beer. Not amazing.

I can’t help but think of Warhammer when I see this beer. Its a brew worth of a dwarf. Rich, thick and strong. Lots of malt and caramel. Toasty finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle given to me by a friend...thanks Nibs. Bottle massivley overcarbonated...overflowwed upon opening. Aroma of molasses, black liquorice, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Deep brown head...would last for ever it seems like, beer is ebony. Overcarbonation affects the flavor. Once you get past the bubbles, bittersweet chocolate and roasty malt with some sweetness come thorugh. Not much else besides a smokey roasted malt essence that is pleasant. Finish is bitter, with not much sweetness coming through. Mouth feel is over carbonated and finishes with somewhat of an alcohol burn, nice and warm. Would like to try again with the proper cabonation.

bottle. gusher. about 5:1 head to beer ratio. something is very wrong here. after letting it settle for 15 minutes, it’s still very overcarbonated. very roasty with quite a bit of coffee. i’d recommend trying to find this on tap until they figure out how to bottle things properly.
