Sample at Neil’s HSC initation. This beer is brownish-black with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Partchy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee with a bit of smoke. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, black coffee and spiced hops. Notes of dark chocolate as well. The finish is roasty and sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 29, 2009

Big thanks to markwise for this. Pours deep darkness with mocha head. The modest aroma is nice and chocolaty with a hint of caramel and bits of dark roastiness. The taste is a bit thin to start. I get a mix of dark roastiness, some yummy chocolate, faint banana and a touch of caramel. Into the finish some dry roastiness evens out the sweetness into the finish along with a sense of a mild off note of tartness. Good stuff. Cavie (4874) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Black as all hell. Gorgeous aroma with cocoa and caramel. Taste is a little dry. Has edges of burn with good notes of malt. Solid through and through. blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2009

Bottle from batch #2 (I’m guessing there, but I figure it has to be batch #2, ’cuz I’m not tasting any banana). Black pour with a thin light brown head. Chocolate malt aroma with a touch of wheat. Chocolate malt flavor with wheat and a bit of alcohol before the dry coffee finish. No banana and that’s a good thing. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
