A roasty chocolate malt aroma. Definite sweetenss comes through in the nose. The beer is black with a tan head. It looks a little muddy and crude as well. Flavor is intensely roasty, nutty, and chocolatey. It finishes pretty crisp with a lingering coffee flavor. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On tap at Karl Strauss. Hazy brown with no head. Rich chocolate, nutty, and roasty aroma and taste with a clean crisp finish. I thought this one was pretty good. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Light tar color, nose of fruity dark plum and raisin, some dark caramel and light roast. The flavor is a bit metallic and thin, comparatively. Decent tail. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2013

Hazy and very dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was of sweet chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor had a sweat and big coffee front then a chocolate finish. Light to medium bodied with a lively mouthfeel.

On tap at Carlsbad location. Color of dark brown with a light chocolate head. Aroma of chalky malt, roasted malt and cocoa. Flavor was chalky, roasted and cocoa. Fairly standard for the style, lacking anything special. Palate was a bit watery. Just ok. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2009

Draft. Dark brown in the glass with a tan head that left light lace. Aroma and flavor of toasted malt and light caramel. Light body. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 28, 2006
On tap at Universal. Abit of hoppiness for the style with this one, good balance, nice drinking beer, dark fruit, but very easy drinking.
