Sampled at a Freetail release, bottle share. Pours a dark, deep brown with some ruby highlights and a mocha head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and espresso. Flavors are similar and adds milk chocolate and medium sweetness. Very nice lingering coffee/cocoa finish. I’d seek this one out again. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2010

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is cocoa, peanut and hay. Medium to full body with a tingle. Taste is prune, black olive, molasses and licorice. Rustic and spot on style-wise but a bit too bitter for my taste to really shine. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Taste thanks to Chris!DalzAle (2036) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2010
dark black, puffy cream head with light lacing. Straightforward chocolate, lightly dirty roast, grainy Graham cracker in the back. Heavy fudgy flavor, lightly bitter roast through the finish. Mouth is coating, a bit dark chocolate bitter, not green enough. A bit of dark fruit in the finish.
Bottle thanks to JCB. Dark black pour, a little carbonation and great aroma of peat and bitter chocolate. Flavor is rich creamy smoky bitter chocolate, vanilla, a little black licorice and finished good and bitter with a little dry hoppiness. Solid beer all around.

Bottle sampled at the Top of the Hops Beer Festival, Charlottesville, VA, 9/11/10. It was nice to see this as they only brought one bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, nutty notes, minty hops and faint fruity notes in the finish. The taste is chocolate, minty hops, nutty notes and caramel. Full bodied. Very nice beer. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2010
