Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, slight vanilla, and cream. Poured pitch black in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, tan/brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, hops, and light pine. Medium body. Thin, slick, creamy texture. Soft to average carbonation. Chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and slight cream finish. 8%ABV is completely hidden throughout. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2010
Firkin pour. Roasty chocolate aroma. Mouthfeel leaves some texture to be desired. Little bit bitter, some light roasted flavor notes. DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Draft from firkin at Craft’s Dock Street event. Pours so black I can’t 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. jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2010

Opaque black with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast, some smoked malts, and light alcohol. Taste of sweeter chocolate notes, roast, smoke, dark chocolate, and light alcohol in the finish. 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. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - DEC 10, 2008
