This robust dark ale is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Caramel, molasses and chocolate flavors fill the palate. Its sweet start is perfectly balanced by a roasted dry finish.

On tap in Orlando. A decent example of style, a touch too sweet to be amazing but still a very drinkable beer Iíd be happy to drink again.

koleminer20 (2856) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2016
On draft at BJís in West Covina. The pour is a medium black with a thick light khaki head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty bland. There is a light roast and a hint of chocolate, but thatís is. No sweetness, no depth. The flavor is thin and light with more of a metallic malt dominating. There isnít much happening. Light malts, a hint of chocolate, and a heap of metallic grain thing happening that doesnít do anyone any favors. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and a real lack of flavors on the back end. The aftertaste is metallic and forced chocolate malts. Interesting, but not a full time beer

Draft in a flight at BJís in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Probably a lot better than the low ratings indicate, and was really pretty good, especiallypaired with the All Night Burger.
