22oz bottle 6/2/12 (Binny’s Naperville) 51° in Snifter-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, and slight dried fruit. Taste of the same with some more sweetness, choclate, and coffee. This full bodied brew is a bit different but still awesome. Great brew. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade with bittermestupid - Pours a dark brown color with a 2/3 finger thick tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, playdough, and light chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and dark esters. Chocolate lingers in the finish. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overbearing. A good beer. Thanks Greg. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Barely any head; what’s there is brown. Opaque black body. Earthy chocolatey aroma with soy sauce notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty linoleum taste with alcohol notes. Fullish body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish soy sauce and chocolate aftertaste with burnt earthy vanilla fudge notes. Really nice and harmonic.
