Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a deep brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is big on malt with roasted malt and some spice tossed in for good measure. The flavor is spiced cocoa with hops mixed in. Overall a really interesting beer that I would drink again.

Bottle. Malty and roasty, a bit thin. Chocolate, rye bread. Next time I have this I will have to think of exactly the right time to have it - when I did have it was after a succession of stronger beers, and that is *not* the right time to have it.

Pours a very dark brown with a taupe-tan head. Dark malt, some chocolate, and lactose on the nose. Full mouthfeel, but becomes thin and sharp. Coffee, dark malt, red fruit briefly in the middle, cola, and chocolate. Pretty dry all the way through.

Draft at the brewery The beer poured a deep black with no head and lacing. The aroma of chocolate and burnt malts greets you. The taste was full bodied with chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. The beer had a average carbonation. This is one of best I have of this style. The finish was nicely done with dry roasted malts closing out the beer. This was a birthday visit to the very successful Westbrook Brewery.

On tap @ Westbrook. Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Roasted malts and coffee grounds are prominent on the nose. Quite a bit more sweetness than I typically expect or prefer for this sort of beer. Molasses and brown sugar are particularly strong. Maybe some chocolate covered almonds? Decent carbonation.
