Poured from a bottle. Big foamy head. Aroma is full of chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows suit with a great blend of dark chocolate, coffee, maybe a hint of anise. Great mouthfeel throughout. Nice long, dry finish. Patrickctenchi (6806) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2014

Bottle. Pours black with very little head and lacing. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate and some dark fruit. Taste is a little coffee and chocolate and plum or prune. Good but tastes more like a porter. drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Excellent! Appearance is a thick velvety tan head that lasts forever; lots of lace and an opaque brown black color. Aroma at first is just dry dark roasted coffee and then the mall to comes on and I pick up more of vanilla and Cocoa and toffee. Flavor is like aroma; carbonic Tang is upfront but toned down there's a bit of sweetness but also tonedown; lovely beer. Body is perfect.

Aroma is coffee, dry/dark malts and a hint of fruit/acidity. The flavor is coffee, chocolate, dark malts, fruit and a dryish/acidic finish. LilBeerDoctor (4229) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours black with a thick chocolate colored head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roasted malt. Flavor of rich liquor-laden chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla. SO chocolatey! It is like dessert in a glass. Not the artificial tootsie roll chocolate either- rich dark chocolate and dark chocolate fudge. Heavenly.

Sample at the brewpub. Inky black color with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a strong charred malt character and notes of coffee and cocoa. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
