UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Had this on tap served on nitro. Appearance was black with a nice tall creamy head that slowly subsided. Aroma had some nice roasted and chocolate notes, but also had a slight metallic note to it that I didn?t care for. Mouthfeel was full and creamy as expected with a dry finish. Taste was of smooth chocolate without being overwhelming and just enough hops to give some balance. Overall an enjoyable and well done beer.

Black pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Metallic aroma, some burnt sugar, banana, and licorice. Lightly charred and dark fruits. The flavor is more enjoyable than the nose. Big roast and coffee notes. Dark chocolate, licorice, and burnt sugar. Some dark fruits, maybe vanilla, and a light sweetness.
