someviking (132) - old bridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2012
pours an almost completely black color with a lovely sized tan head. dark chocolate malts and roasted malts are prominent in the nose. smells great! extremely smooth to drink. carbonation is there but it’s just enough in my opinion. dark cocoa nibs and slight vanilla come through in the taste. just a relatively simple and wonderfully done beer. wow... a real treat my friends cheers!

Draft. Deep brown body with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, molasses, licorice, vanilla, milk chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Taste of marshmallow, ash, cherry, vanilla, baker's chocolate. Flavorful with a bone dry finish.

1 Pint 9 Fl. Oz. bottle split by 2 @ "D. & E. Tasting #3". Bottled 11 April 2017. Obtained in a trade with AdamChandler. Dark brown, creamy solid mocha head. Nose is basic coffee, mocha, chocolate, cacao, basic cacao, easy low roast. Taste is basic cheap cacao, mocha, chocolate, low dry, very basic chocolate cacao,… Solid easy drinking every day brew, lacking depth or complexity plus I got zero vanilla,.. Body is the same. Decent but didn’t feel top 50 style to me.

500ml bottle @ Matt’s. Spring CANBIF 2017, thanks byronic.. Pours opaque black with a small tan head. Nose is quite roasted with hints of dark chocolate. Flavour is also quite toasted with some nutty character and a trailing sweetness. Interesting but I’m not getting much for vanilla.

Dark brown. On the nose, there’s a lot of toastines, nuttiness. Almost has a smoky quality. On the palate, sweet, with a toasty character, and a light molasses. Decent body...maybe a bit thin but the dark sugars are really nie. For me, it’s more of an old ale or maybe a porter, but whatever you call it, a nice dark ale.
