UPDATED: FEB 16, 2011 Great chocolate, roast malt characteristics with an unbelievably nice smoky finish. This beer is just good stuff. The head lasts a while and the lacing on my glass was fantastic. I will definitely pursue more of this beer next year. bhiner41 (194) - Darien, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Slight hop aroma and flavor. Tastes kind of like burned carmel. No head, black in color. No burn from alcohol. Smooth texture. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2011
(22oz bottle courtesy of jcnd9803. Thanks Jon!). Pours dark brown/rootbeer color with thin tan head. Aroma of big chocolate, coffee, caramel and a bit of pepper. Taste is sweet with some peppery notes and some roasty bitterness. Full bodied with oily/sticky texture. Roasty finish. Really nice! jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2010 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, foamy bown head / Nose of cocoa, lemon, and dry hops / Medium body, some acidity and chewiness, with good hoppy balance and dry finish / Flavors of cocoa, tobacco, dry hops, lemon, and a touch of rye spce on the finish / A fine, hoppy stout. nbondi (250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Black with frothy tan head. Nose of bittersweet baker’s chocolate, milk, rye, spice. Good carbonation with somewhat mellow spiciness, nice seet milk chocolate flavor, with slight coffee roastiness, and some confectioners sugar. Dry, bitter, lasting finish. Very good.

This is a very special brew. Starts out like a sweet stout but the hops take a bigger profile after a while. Perfect look, black with a tan head. Very good indeed.

Pours a jet black color and has a tremendous chocolate aroma. Tastes like dark chocolate and burnt coffee. There is a nice rye bitterness that finishes this beer nicely. This is awesome!
