Slutfest! Black, dark tan head. Smooth milk chocolate aroma. Flavor is dark chocolate and coffee, hint of dark fruit lingering in the background. Rich and smooth, a very nice beer. One of the highlights of the day for me.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Glaçage à gâteau au chocolat liquide avec les attraits de la levure lager qui donne une fraîcheur et une clarté des saveurs. Torréfaction et malts rôti en vedette, vraiment solide.

From tap, CBC 2013. Beautiful black with a dense brown head. High malty, riasted, with notes of chocolate and licorice. Very smooth flavor, sweet and light bitter, with a lingering bitter, slightly salty finish and a creamy, velvety texture. Full body. Lovely.

Happy Father’s Day.

The beer is black with an inch of beige head. The aroma brings chocolate, molasses, dark fruit. Beautiful balance and delicious flavor. Alcohol is evident but gracefully masked. Rich and full bodied. Abundant chocolate, both dark and milk. Palate coating and viscous. Delicious.

A monster indeed. Thick, full-bodied beer. Strong roasted malt, but also with some hops. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black from a growler with minimal head or lace. Aroma of sweet chocolate and big fruity sweetness. Tasteis more roasty than the nose, but still nice chocolate and fruity esters. Thin, but still viscous, really nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark mahogany pour with a midnight core. Small latte head that diminished to a wisp and a ring. Nose is of cocoa, soy, vanilla, and dark fruit. Flavor filled with shoyu...Kikkoman through and through. Some brownie batter and fudge, but tons of briney qualities. Sticky and coating. Molasses, caramel, and salt-water taffy. An interesting take on a Baltic Porter.

What a great beer. This brewery is doing things. Pours jet black with lasting creamy brown head. Aroma is cocoa, burnt toast, some herbal hoppiness, and light currants. Really great creamy thick and rich mouthfeel. Hugely drinkable for 10% because it isnt overly sweet. Awesome/.
