Once you had black.....anyway nice color, head, great coffee-ish taste. Perfect level of bubbly. Highly recommend.
Appearance: Dark Red Brown to blackish. Opaque. Half a finger of tan foam.
Nose: Sweet dark malts, stone fruit. Hints of chocolate and just a touch of nuts
Taste: Dark stone fruits, light sweetness. Darker aspects including mocha and caramel.
Body: Medium to fuller
Parting thoughts: A very interesting beer. Stone fruit and stout working out well together.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, roasted nuts, bitter chocolate, light plum sweetness. Flavor of roasted malt, mocha, roasted nuts, light sweet fruits. Chalky palate. Interesting beer, lots of roast as well as some coffee/mocha flavors as well as some sweetness from the plum. Overall ok, pretty drinkable.

On tap at Elevator Brewing Co, Columbus OH, March 2010. MBA (Master of Beer Appreciation) beer for February 2010 - good to find this still available. No ABV stated. Dark red/brown. Not the darkest and not opaque. Beige head. Quite rich mouthfeel. Strong mocha. Not so strong plum. Some dry roasty bitterness. Tasty.

Draft at brewpub. Poured dark brown color with an average creamy nitro brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable complex beer.

Pours a deep brown with a thick tan head. Has a good mocha taste, but I didn’t get the plum taste, which is probably a good thing. Really a nice beer overall.
