Bottle. Poured into a NB tulip glass a dark brown color with a slight tan head. Roasty, chocolate, and slight molasses with some smokiness. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. The taste is pretty interesting, starts off with a slight sweetness followed by a roasty chocoloate flavor with leather and a bitterness that isn’t that great at the end. Both the taste and the aroma has an odd flavor and taste that throws me off and I’m not sure if I like it or not. Fred82 (2339) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2010
750ml bottle at a tasting.
kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Appearance : Black with a small head.
Aroma : Cacao, light vegetal notes. Roasted malt. Light peppers.
Taste : Roasted malt with some hops. Light cacao on the finish.
Overall : Vegetal notes are quite weird. The rest has nothing really outstanding to offer. Very avereage beer. Maybe our bottle was off.
Bottle. Pours very deep brown, topped with a medium sized mocha head. Aroma of roasted chocolate, cocoa, and ash. Charcoal hits the palate first, and is soon joined by dark chocolate and burnt coffee. Bitterness fades, and dark chocolate hangs out for a long finish. Decent, but a little too ashy for me. robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010
Jet black, large mocha head.
Aroma is odd..... Bitter cocoa, burnt malt, a weird sweet/sour leathery malts. Some sweet berries come through also. The flavor is more of the odd sweetness, almost lactic, and it mingles with an intense burnt malt and burnt espresso. The finish is cut and dry bitter.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a dense tan head. Nose is quite odd with hints of burnt rubber, salty chocolate, baby cereal and stale coffee. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is bitter chocolate, green cabbage and coffee bean. Bitter earthy finish. Tastes OK but the funky smell permeates the experience.
