Pours a clean and sharp inky black with two fingers of dense creamy dark tan head. Nose shows lots of dark fruit and anise, licorice and fruit skins abound. Some acidity and deep roast. Flavor is very sharp and abrasive. Lots of ashy/acrid burnt grain with some bitter chocolate. Dark fruit skins and spent coffee grounds. Very acidic and brash. Full medium body on the finish. Sharp with some warming alcohol.

Black body, dark brown head & lace with good retention. Super roasty nose, touch of hops accent. So dark & chocolatey. Silky and smooth until the very end when the alcohol spears the back of my throat. Quite nice otherwise.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Via trade with Bmart. The aroma is sweet, caramel, chcolate, toffee, vanilla, oak, and a bit of bright citrus. The appearance is deep black, tan head, oily lacing in glass. The flavor is like the aroma, chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla, and a hint of oak or wood, with a tad of citrus. The finish is chocolate, roasty, pine, citrus. Thick in body, chewy. Very, very nice.

12oz bottle thanks to Ed5388, thanks bro. Poured a thick oily deep dark black with a smaller foamy dark mocha colored head. Aroma is probably one of the weaker things about this beer. Notes of oily chocolate, burnt dark chocolate, root beer, cola, soy sauce, nicotine, some green veggies. Big full body with softer carbonation and no noticable heat at all. Flavor of burnt dark chocolate, dark fruit and nuts, slight oxidation, vanilla extract and hint of roasted coconut. Great beer thanks Ed.

tap blue dust. Pour is jet black with rich caramel head. Nose is overly sweet, raisin and berries dominate. Faint tobacco but lacks malt depth. Taste is chalky up front before the sweetness takes over. Tons of sugar, burnt brown sugar, caramel, berry sweetness. Body is syrupy, decent carb. Way too sweet.

Chocolate Pils. Really good thick chocolate on a lighter body and decent hop that shows through. Great drinkability. Thick brown coloured body, with minimal head. Roasted chocolate smell. Smooth mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pour is black with some nice brown head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and nuts define the aroma and taste. Surprised at the abv, I like it.

Bottle shared in GTMW line - Pours black cola with a bubbly tan ring of head. Nose is a bit of ashy roast, pretty dry with a bit of sharp booziness and a touch of sweetness. Taste is ashy, dry, a little vanilla and some brown sugar. Medium-bodied and pretty dull.
