Hampton, Va - on tap at Taphouse on Queens Way. Dark, earthy brown pour, khaki colored head with a decent bit of lacing. Strong chocolate accents to the aroma, a touch of day old coffee, Flavor runs along similar lines with a strong presence of chocolate with some trailing earthy topsoil notes. Thick enough mouthfeel.

Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.
3.75 A: Deep brown-black color. Two fingers of frothy creamy beige head. Retention is about average and a finger of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Big toastiness and nuttiness right off the start. Also some roastiness, chocolate, and a fairly powerful hop presence for the style. Floral and earthy hops.
3.25 T: Dry toastiness is the dominant flavor. Nuts underneath. Again there’s notes of roasted malts, chocolate. Moderate hop bitterness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and very smooth.
3.25 D: Good beer, but run of the mill.

Bottle. Was very surprised how good this one was. Dark brown in color with a very, light tan head. Aroma was a toasted malt, slightly chocolate smell. Taste was a very pleasant malty, toasted nut with hints of chocolate. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear dark mahogany brown color, one-finger beige head, cobweb lace. Taste is nutty malt that stays solid through a mildly hopped swallow, moving smoothly to a medium finish. A simple brew with too much body, too much strength, too much nut to work well. It feels heavy and unbalanced to me. I can certainly drink it easily enough, but I wouldn’t ask for another.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark lean copper brown pour with one finger of tan head. Nose is odd, very rustic and grainy with some bready sweetness and caramel notes. Kind of watery and weird/grainy in the flavor. Very earthy and rustic bready/toasted grain malt profile. Very light bodied and lean.
