Walnut and soil nose. Cleat dark brown, thick tan sticky head. Mushroomy, soil, and chocolate flavor. Cane sugar sweetness that is off putting. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Sampled at Dan’s after Top of the Hops tasting. Very dark brown pour with floaties and good tan head. Boatloads of roast and chocolate mix sooooo well with the green citrusy grapefruity hops. Not like most black ipas. This one is more like someone just blended a milk stout with a good ipa. I really liked this. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2012
9/19/12. 22oz bomber from Grassroots. Very dark brown pour (not quite black) with a small, fluffy tan head that fades to a small ring with some fluff and laces in spotty sheets. Rich roasted (but not too bitter) and milk chocolate aroma with some sugary sweetness hits the nose first, followed by citrus, pine, fresh hops. and even touches of cream. Slightly sweet flavor with cream, chocolate, coffee, and roast hits up front followed by grassy hops, citrus, fresh hop character, and lingering hop and roast. Tasty! yespr (45445) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2012
