Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roasted malt and coffee. Medium mouth with light roast, burnt sugar, sweet finish. Good. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle... Tar black ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention with a permanent ring. The aroma is a decadent pairing of chocolate and vanilla with a lesser note of cinnamon. Barely medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and airy carbonation. An early phase of infection has robbed the beer of viscosity, but has not produced enough acidity to totally taint it. Close to all residual sugar has been eaten and dispatched. Bitter roasted cocoa dwarfs all other components. More sugar would emphasize all the maltiness this beer once offered. Finishes acrid, bitter and Sahara-dry. In retrospect, there was a burnt coffee bean element in both the aroma and flavor as well. Despite the bug, this was an enjoyable beer. A shout out to Kevin Kozak for providing the bottle! jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013

Bottle shared by drowland, pours black with a light brown head, a little bit of chocolate mixed in with a decent amount of sweetness, the flavor has a really sweet front end with a cocoa and chocolate finish, mouthfeel is light, nothing crazy good but not bad.
