This poured a very dark brown to black color with a tiny tiny daark tan head. Aroma was lots of dark fruits, molasses and some soy. Flavor was much the same, not very roasty, very sweet with light roast, very thick but hold back the booze very well. Good stuff. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Had this on the day of the June 25th release. Recieved in a short Munich glass.
4.0 A: Black color. Came with a small, short lived beige head.
4.0 S: Moderately roasty with milk chocolate. Sweet dark caramel and molasses. Coffee is subtle, which is strange since it is rather aggressive in the regular version. Nearly NO BOOZE, merely hints of it.
4.0 T: Strong caramel, moderate roastiness, milk chocolate, and mild coffee. Blackstrap molasses underneath. Rich, but barely boozy with a subtle warming after the finish.
5.0 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Great creaminess without too much booze burn.
4.5 D: Great beer and another excellent addition to the Dark App lineup.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampled from a growler at DLD11. Thanks to Kan for the sample. Brown black pour with almost no head. Ashy coffee and chocolate malts in the aroma and flavor. Sweet chocolate malts roast and fruit. Balances well. Pretty decent. 7/3/8/4/15 thx Kan

Sample at Jackie O’s on 2/5/11. Brownish black pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with some booze and chocolate notes. Chocolate malt flavor with some noticeable alcohol before a creamy and roasty finish.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malts, roasted coffee, vanilla, barrel and bourbon. Lots of warming alcohol but holds its balance quite well for the high ABV. Dogbrick (13006) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Sample at the Jackie O’s Bottle Sale/ Stout and Big Beer Fest on 02/05/2011. Blackish-brown pour with a minimal light beige head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malt, chocolate, and hops. Rich and chewy body with flavors of black coffee, chocolate and malt, along with a slight alcohol burn. The finish is roasty with a rich coffee aftertaste. Good beer throughout. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Dark pour with not much head to speak of, but far from still. Aroma is roast, alcohol, coffee, chocolate. Complex aroma and the flavor definitely follows suite. Finish is dry. Balance remained intact, which is a rarity with ice beers. Very nice
