Black deep pour with a thin khaki head. Big sticky and earthy roasty nose with some molasses and mocha. Full flavor with a bit of oats, molasses, roast, and a touch of coffee. It’s a bit chewy and more sweet on the molasses/roasty end than it needs to be. Touch of cinnamon as well. SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2013

Bottle: Moderately sweet example, roasty, a touch acrid. Has some dark chocolate and coffee aspects. A bit more acrid on the backside. Reminds me of chocolate cake without the frosting. Well, I make it sound too sweet perhaps. Roasty, mild to moderate sweetness, with a little bit of acrid bits. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Finishes seems to get a bit sweeter. Has aspects of chocolate and maple syrup at this point.   Might be a little too sweet, at least it gets sweeter as tim goes on. Tiz okay. Thanks Bill! blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2013

On tap at Goodfriend. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma and flavor have tons of chocolate and roasted malt, as well as a little bit of hop bitterness and some cream notes. The alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good beer. Glad to try it.
