Bottle to pint glass
Dark chocolate, cherry, toasted malt, and molasses. Black as night with a 2 cm thick creamy tan head that over time reduces to a thin layer with no lacing. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee along with some grains. This is pretty thin, being almost watery for me.

Strange that with this name this comes out of California! Bottle, dark, clear, slight reddish highlights. Very chocolaty but with some vegetable notes. Clean start to it, with chocolate, then vegetables, then coffee. Odd, okay, not great.
