On tap for the Ratebeer event at Capones. Pours a dark brown or light black color with medium to large creamy brown head. Aromas of bitter cocoa, coffee, roasted grains, bread. Taste is a bready malt driven mix of soy, licorice, spicy rye, and sour hoppy bitterness. Very different beer from what I am used to. Initially didnt care for it but as it warmed and the way it finishes brought it up in my book. egajdzis (6580) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Opaque black color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark roasty malts, dark fruits, chocolate, smoke, and alcohol. Taste of more dark chocolate, fruits, burnt wood, smoke, roast, and a bit of alcohol in the finish. Probably less than 13%. dmac (6262) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Draft at Capones during RBSG 2011. Poured a dark black body with a smaller tight foamy light beige head. Aroma was subdued with notes of chocolate, raisin, nutts, and some dark cherries. Thinner bodied with soft carbonation and rather smooth for a 13% monster. Flavor of dates, dark cherry skins, bananas, paint thinner. The alcohol comes through way to harsh on the flavor.
