On tap. Black. Big toffee. Chocolate roast aroma. Medium body chocolate and roast. Okay beer. redpooba (411) - Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2013
A simplistic black with a white head. The aroma is weak but smells a bit burned. The malts were over roasted, i.e. burned. There was no depth or complexity and the aftertaste was a bit of charred. Studentofbrrs (99) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Very dark beer with minimal head, roasted malt aroma with a bitter taste witha lingering bitter after taste SoberDave (182) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours dark with a nice head that stays for a while. Weak aroma. Taste of hops, bitter stout flavour and coffee. Doesn’t go down as smooth as some. Solid beer, nothing unpleasant about it at all. thevep (22) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery : virtually pitch black with a lingering white head - strong and fairly intense flavour of coffee and a hint of bitterness. Really quite similar to the Skullcrusher also available by Merchant House. Not an original flavour but a satisfying beer on the whole.

.. . .almost as bad as the Skylon Tower’s 3D movie...
Deep black pour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is quite roasty. A touch of light molasses and some dark fruit. A bit of light cocoa and a little bit of roast. Soft palate and decently balanced. A bit of dustiness as well. Some soft toast and cocoa as well.

On tap at Merchant Ale House. Pours dark with foamy head. Hints of chocolate and some smokiness that i didn’t expect.
