Bottle... OsS&BS-I-T-YVBThrowdown... Pours black with a creamy, light brown head. Good retention. The nose is dominated by charcoal, black coffee and cocoa with an unfortunate touch of acetaldehyde. Medium to full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, tangy and fruity with a dab of chocolate thrown in the mash for good measure. Finishes tart and lightly bitter. Kudos to dchmela for bringing this bottle to the Throwdown!

This beer had a black apperance with a tan head. The aroma contains some chocolate, raspberries, coffee, and a hint of smoke. The flavor does not contain a blast of rasperries but they are there. I also taste some coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Overall pretty good but nothing amazing.

Courtesy of markwise. Pours deep dark with cherry red hues and lasting thin mocha head The aroma is malty with malt balls, chocolate, some roastiness and a modest level of cherry fruit sweetness and tartness. The taste is much different starting with an initial pulse of malt and caramel sweetness followed quickly by cherry and berry tartness. The flavor only has hints of the maltiness noted in the nose. It ends with lingering cherry tartness and fading sweetness.

Bomber from ucusty- thanks for this one. Pours cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, some raspberries, and a bit of funk with some malty elements. Flavor is raspberry, funk, tart, malt, and some spicy raspberries that linger into the finish. Medium-bodied and pretty good.

Bottle, courtesy markwise. Black pour, with red highlights, and some thick tan lacing on the glass. Funky nose, sweat, some raspberry, and some peaches, too. Dry coffee flavors, roast, raspberry, slight toasted malty sweetness. Medium-bodied, some spicy elements that almost the drinkability. Overall not so bad.
