Capped 750 from Tavour. Pours dark brown/black with a huge creamy/foamy dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate and dark malts. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is really dark and earthy chocolate, with something that could be called a hint at sour. Certainly there’s very little sweetness here. Earthy chocolate bitter finish.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a fruity treacle aroma. There is a sourish dark molasses flavor with a dry dark chocolate finish.

slowrunner77 (13912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 10, 2018
Near black on tap. Lots of roast and bitterness. A little char and a dry farmhouse finish. It's nice, but drinks almost as much like a funky black ipa as an imperial stout.

Small. Pour at Beercraft. Dark brown with small fading beige head. Aroma is raisins and currants, kind of sweet. Taste brings the yeast forward, not tart, but tangy. Still sweet, and bitter finish clings to the palate. Sweet, funky, tart. Interesting.

750 ml bottle from Tavour. A bit of tart funk on the nose followed by a woody and nutty whole grain malts. Settles into a bit of dark chocolate. A little playful and the alcohol is pretty present for 10-11 percent.

3.4
Fujimo2000 (214) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Pours dark brown/black with a good lasting tan lacing. Immediate aroma is coffee and the taste borders on metal which makes the name very interesting. Not really a big fan of this beer.

ryanfolty (2667) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2017
March 7, 2017 - bottle at Brass Tap, batch 18 6.30.16. Dark pour with limited head. Aroma was roasty with some spice and light tart fruit. Taste was strong on the roast, but had some light spice and tart fruit in the finish. Aftertaste came back to the roast though.

2.4
Cavie (5063) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle. Black appearance, opaque. Dark tan head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Tart notes can be picked up on the nose, but faint. Roasty notes. Very intense flavor. Dark roast, bitter, burnt grain edging on harsh. Wild flavors, farmhouse, alcohol warmth on the finish. Dark fruits, some chocolate. The wild yeast interplay doesn’t work well with the heavy roast. The original Black Metal with English Ale yeast was WAY better.

samneeeee (27) - colorado springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Batch #17. Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Weird aroma with coffee, chocolate, some earthiness and a bit of funk. The taste is less funky than the aroma with more coffee, chocolate, some earthiness too. Pretty mellow flavour though. Body is pretty nice, full bodied with a slippery mouthfeel.

2.1
Andrew196 (2080) - Katy, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Press opaque mahogany with a wimpy light beige head. Strange aroma. Woodiness, carboard, coffee, maple, nuts. Slick on the tongue, sweet sourness, char, cherry, chocolate and licorice. Can’t get into it....Struck me as too medicinal.
