On tap at Northbound Smokehouse (Minneapolis, Minnesota, 20/2/13)
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Oats and a bit of roastiness in the aroma. Taste is a balance of bitter and sweet. A bit lighter than I was expecting considering the abv, but not bad at all.

Atom (2451) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2014
750mL pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, lactose, oats, and light molasses. Taste of bitter chocolate, some hops, oats. Pretty bland really.

almsot pitch black, 1 finger head that fades fast. Smells like rotten milk, cottage cheese and cocoa. If I hold my nose, the taste is okay. It has that walnut, charcoal, cocoa and coffee bean but there is a strange milky sweetness at the finish.

Tap at the brewery. Skyview’s description hits it dead on the mark. Tight chocolate and mild roasted coffee - smooth and flavorful. Good stuff.

3.4
Skyview (6039) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2013
On draught at the Excelsior brewery’s taproom in Excelsior, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind minimal lacing and a clean disk top. Aroma of toasted chocolate malt, oats, a hint of black malt, and some mocha. Taste is full bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of chocolate, light coffee, some smoked chocolate malt and some caramel/chocolate fudge. Finish is quite smooth, malty and sweet, with aftertastes of caramel and chocolate malt.
