13 oz draught, pint room. Virtually opaque dark black; light beige head; medium lacing. Mostly chocolate, coffee, and some roast. Solid, forgettable.
Draft at Smith's. Pours hazy black, looking ruby thru direct light, and tan head that laces well. Nose is roasty dark malt, chocolate, coffee, fig, molasses. Tastes roasty, malty, with notes of chocolate, molasses, smokiness, coffee, hops, and a dry finish. Solid, not elite. voyageurmike (510) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2017

On tap at Fat Heads in Pittsburgh. Pours a deep black with a thin to medium sized tan head. Sweet and fruity on the nose over roast and chocolate. Medium bodied, warm roast and sweet dark chocolate. Dark fruit and plum into the finish with a hint of cherry and long sweet chocolate. Alcohol is pretty well hidden here, but with the amount of sweetness I’d be hard pressed to drink more than one of these.

Tap at FatHeads, Opaque black body. Lacy off-white head. Thick sweet chocolate tones. Coffee tinged, stick and sweet. Not on the same level as some of their other beers. Still solid. Roasty. A little bit hot. OK.
