Had at Thanksgiving about 2017. Pours from a jug-like bottle a dark, dark brown. Nose is roasted malt, earthy. It has some of the roasted malts on the taste, along with a syrupy sweetness (I guess the molasses) and some bitterness. Has a chewy mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Pours intensely dark with rich thick two finger head delivering strong lacing. Aroma is caramel, chocolate and resin. Sweet aroma surprising leads to bitter chocolate taste with thick texture. Aftertaste is also deep, bitter chocolate. DocJitsu (2060) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Very dark brown pour with a rich, sticky reddish-caramel color head. Sorghum, dark roasted malt, and a bit of cherry on the nose. Very thick mouth feel. Dark roasted malt, sorghum, and some cherry fruitiness in the flavors. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium sized light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and molasses. Flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, molasses and had a nice dry roasty finish. somewhereman (1) - - APR 10, 2017 does not count
thick with coffee and chocolate undertones and a hint of black liqorice. Smooth after effect on the palate (ie not syrupy), just a nice residual flavor. I remember my first time, it was to mark a passage of time, and i could not remember if the beer was that good, or if it just fit the mood. Well the second time confirmed it, it is that good. Both experiences were form the 1L bottle with ceramic stopper. Do yourself a favor, pour a pint and sit in your favorite armchair and simply relax. katrinaez (2355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Thick root molasses and tobacco scent. Deep blackish brown color. Taste is tobacco, anise, earthy, and molasses. Heavy malts. Mouth is not overly thick for style, but very filling in general. Bottle.
