Pours a pitch black with a quickly disappearing tannish head. Strong aroma of bitter chocolate, alcohol, caramel, campfire and oak. The flavor is sweet and malty dominated by dark roasted malt as well as grapefruit and dark fruits. Finishes more dry and bitter. Big bodied, small carbonation.

bomber... pours a thick dark black with a small tan head which quickly dissipates. slight minty, burnt chocolate aroma. Huge presence of liquorice in this one... very nice. .. all the way through the finish. Big chocolate, malty, soft body that flows over the palate with grace. The finish is spectacular.... an upfront and lasting burst of liquorice with a thick coating of chocolate. Good to the last drop.... excellent.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Light brown small head that mostly diminished, no lacing, opaque, no carbonation observed, and a black hue. Nose was chocolate, roasty, malty, burnt and some licorice. Ditto for the flavor with a dry finish. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Medium-full body. A very, very quaffable beer, well balanced and a very definitive roastiness in the nose and flavor. Definitely try this one if you have the opportunity to do so. A joy to drink! More please!

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Pours thick black with dense tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, citrus hops, some licorice. Flavor of dark chocolate and roasted barley, coffee, vanilla, oatmeal. Flavor is nice and bold. Nice use of bittering hops to balance dark chocolate, espresso, sweet molasses and oatmeal. Nice roasty finish. Full-bodied without much in the way of carbonation. Marvelous.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head recedes to hug rim leaving no lacing. Chocolate and alcohol aromas. Metallic aromas. Tingly chocolate upfront with light body and a lasting cocoa-espresso finish.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Thanks to Mike for this one. Body is black and forms a small layer of brown bubbles on top when poured. Aroma similar to powdered chocolate along with some licorice. Flavor has many layers of different bitter roast from the beginning through to the finish. Bittersweet chocolate is also present. Nice smooth body without much alcohol noticeable.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2008
pitch black with tan head that quickly dissipates. very thick and smooth mouthfeel with little carbonation. flavor is of chocolate and roasted malt with a strong alcohol character that provides nice depth. a rather dry finish with no discernable hop flavor outside the slight bittnerness. a very nice beer that has no obvious faults. the bitter chocolate aftertaste is very nice

Thanks to Acknud for hooking me up with this. Shared with Ian. Pours motor oil black with a thin tan head. If you roll it around in the glass, you can see how thick it is by the way it coats the glass. Aroma is Coffee, oatmeal, chocolate malt, and hops all rolling around in there. Taste is an explosive mix of thick bitter hops, roasted grains, and chocolate all smoothed out by the oatmeal. Finishes with a nice chocolate hop aftertaste. I really like this as an after dinner type drink, but it was a bit much for my friends.
