Pours jet black with a paperthin mocha head, visibly viscous. Aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate, roast. Taste follows with some added caramel notes. Slightly sweet but the oak and roast balance. Excellent beer

Poured dark black, aromas of raisins, oak, vanilla, prunes and some roast. Flavors are the same with some dark fruits coming though. It was hot outside and this was real enjoyable. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2012

Pitch black with a ring of tan head. Tons of oak in the nose with roasted malt and some raisin. Chocolate and oak mix together wonderfully creating a very unique brew.

almost black. thick. low slow carbonation.
vinous aroma... also, chocolate chips, bandaids, smoke (throughout and annoying), wood, oats and roast.
the palate is pretty frikkin sweet.... stop with the sugar already... it tastes like choc-o-bloc chocolate flavored port wine...ugh. at least the bandaid note isn’t in the flavor.
it is thick, syrupy and cloying. low carbonation doesn’t help it any. 7/4/4/2/13--
