Bottle. Dark brown pour, small ring of carbonation and an aroma of a light cocoa. Flavor is a little caramel, more chocolate, some dark cherry and slightly vegetal and thin on the finish. Was hoping for a richer/thicker body, but still not too bad. DasBierChef (1081) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Lots of chocolate in the nose and over all not too bad, but nothing special. A nice choice if you’re looking for a darker beer on a hotter day. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Dark mohogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice. Taste is sweet, roasted malt., dark fruit, chalky. The flavor sticks with you. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
bottle: Pour is dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium creamy tan head.
aroma is dusty cocoa and caramel. some woody herbal/licorice notes.
Dark fruit and toffe in the front for flavour. some nutty chocolate and roasted malt, bit thin towards the end though. dwyerpg (6496) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
This is pretty sweet but not a whole lot that’s good in the flavor or body. Mostly it’s sugary and chocolaty but just not all that good.

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. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2012
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. 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. weitz15 (622) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Dark brown pour with a cream head. Flavor of slight barley malts and light toffee. Body is a medium tone.
