Firkin pour. Roasty chocolate aroma. Mouthfeel leaves some texture to be desired. Little bit bitter, some light roasted flavor notes.

Draft from firkin at Crafts Dock Street event. Pours so black I cant tell if it is turbid or not, with a 1-finger tan head that stays around for awhile. Well hidden alcohol, with predominantly dark patent malt and dark chocolate notes in the flavor. Fairly dense palate, with good complexity, and taste notes of late hops, fig, and minor rauchy hints matched by a gargantuan malt load. Delicious, and I feel like a real beer hunter every time I find a beer like this.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Scarily easy to drink. Great flavor of Belgian chocolate. Silky oily mouthfeel, almost a porter. After the chocolate the malt backbone emerges, with a long bitter hoppy finish. Bonus points for pulling this off at 6%. One of most pleasant surprises of Philadelphia Beer Week.

Growler courtesy of JB175. Pours dark brown with a finger length lasting head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, some molasses, dark fruit. Tastes of bitter malt, dark chocolate, textured sweet malt. Velvety layered mouthfeel. Well worth seeking out!
