Bottle. Pours very thick and dark with almost no head. Huge toffee smell to the nose. Taste is more fruity than anything else, which is interesting. A little heavy, but not bad. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Sweet malt scents and taste with a bit of malt. Taste is way too sweet, it masks the other flavors.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of alcohol and some dark fruit notes. I also get a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of raisin and prune notes, as well as some molasses and roasted malt. I also get the slightest hint of smoke. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Looks thick and awesome. Tastes heavy and malty with nutty notes. A good beer for a cold night. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has big notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, dark bread malts and porto. Great nose!!! Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Large frothy off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery soft. Overall an amazing beer I can’t get enough of. I have know idea why the rating for this are so low. It drank good to me.

Bottle. Pours dark with no head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor matches that. Very nice, thick and full-bodied. Not my favorite Big Eddy, but a solid beer. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Dark brown almost black color with very minimal lacing. There is a robust chocolate coffee nose. Palate is full bodied with a licorice overtone with a coffee bean backing. Smooth overall with a roasted coffee finish that last for a while. Good beer to warm you up on those cold nights...licorice is present. crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Caramally, ligh smoke. An interesting take on the style, non-traditional. But it is decent. sjohnny (674) - - OCT 31, 2012
Malty, toffee, dried fruit aroma. Pours dark auburn with slowly fading tan head leaving light lacing. Very smooth caramel flavor with a woody slightly bitter finish. OnWisconsin (140) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2012
This needs to age. First one tasted too sweet and under attenuated. Not very good, just too much going on with the dark fruit.
