Healthy tasting taste that feels nice to drink, but doesn’t have an overbearing taste. Patrickctenchi (6806) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2012

330ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee and mild hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with a roasty malt bitterness and mild hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. A very nice surprise as it well exceeded my expectations. mcnealc31 (258) - Elida, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Completely black underneath a giant, frothy, khaki head. Smells pretty good, too, with lots of toffee and some bit alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is surprising light and slick, but there are a lot of flavors here to like. Toffee, rum, brown sugar, big alcohol bite, and at 7.6% ABV, that’s not surprising. The hops are kind of funky, and not necessarily in a good way.
I didn’t have big expectations, but this is unique and pretty tasty. Worth giving a toss VTHopHead (1513) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle/12oz - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a very small tan head that faded to almost nothing. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate and dark roasted malts... some bready yeast too. Flavor is slightly bitter with a hint of coffee, some nice chocolate and too darkly roasted malts... burnt tasting. Finish fades from slightly sweet to start then to bitter and astringent at the end. OK, not great...
