It was nice to pick out the flavors of this non-BA version. The smell was full of roasted malts, coffee and earthy-cocoa aromas. It tasted like Tootsie-Rolls covered in coffee beans with a slight caramel twang. High ABV was concealed very well here. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 9, 2013

on tap at ccb the week after hunahpu. Pours dark black with a big mocha head. Aroma of chocolate fudge, dark fruit, and slight roast. Taste follows, like a chocolate cake but in beer form Nickls (2555) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Tap. Jet black with a darker tan head. Lots of chocolate and light roasty notes in the aroma. Toasty, fairly sweet, some tobacco, dark sweet fruits, and warming alcohol and roasty finish. Thicker and a bit syrupy. drowland (8895) - Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
3/13/12. On tap at the brewery. Dark black pour with a small brown head that fades to a ring but sticks. Rich aroma of dark chocolate, roast, dark fruits, raisins, and a hint of sour. Even richer, sweeter flavor at first with tons of dark fruits in the middle followed by lingering dry roastiness. Very tasty.
