Tap @ Confluence. Pours a fairly clear reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy, a bit dank, piney, chocolate aroma. Slightly sweet, spicy hoppy, light fruity, piney, chocolate, mild caramel flavor. Solid. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Growler. Reddish brown pour with a smaller head. Citrus hop in this - hops aren’t too bold. Tasty though. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2014

Growler at Paul’s tasting. Pours near black with a beige head. Super dank piney and floral hops, with lighter roasted malts and a hint of sweetness. Really fresh and really damn good. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Good balance of roast and citrus hops, though it falls a little more heavily on the roast stout side. Some musky malt and dark chocolate. Black pour with great head and lacing. Bitter finish. Nitro at Churchkey.

Keg on the bus during RBWG 2013. Dark brown pour, almost black, with a nice tan head. Roasted malts, pine, fruitiness on the aroma. Nice flavor, dark malts, roast, grapefruit, pine, medium chocolate. Nice. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a medium brown black .. . mild foam .. low lacing .. . odd smell .. . light roast .. . no character, oh well .. . . You’re just saying that because I said it to you. It doesn’t work. It doesn’t mean anything. bytemesis (8398) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tap. Pours clear hazel with a small tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with notes of citrus and pine. Flavor is the same, touch of dankness, bit of coffee, fairly muted. Light sweet, light bitterness growing stronger on the finish. Medium body. Pretty decent. radagast83 (8065) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a very dark brown head with a small tan head. Aroma was dark fruit notes, light soapy, flower petal hop notes. Flavor had roasted malts, very mild bitterness. A nice deviation from some of the more pine or citrus, chalky black IPAs that are out there. drfabulous (7944) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2013
32 ounce growler thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Black with creamy head. Nicely hopped. Some chocolate and roast (despite the description saying not roasty). Tasty.
