A brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet soapy and beany mal. In mouth, a nice dark roasted malt with light treacle and roasted notes, maple wood, not bad. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.

Dark brown color, brown head. The chocolate and the Belgian yeast are not friends. They just don’t marry well together. Odd flavors, yeasty, vegetal. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
750mL thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours clear, but dark brown looking black in the Oerbier stemware with a a luxurious, thick reddish head. Good retention and spotty lacing. Nose is big on the cinnamon and gingerbread. Could pass for a "pumpkin" stout. Unfortunately the taste is very thin and lemon acidic. Comes across as a bit soapy but so much lemon. Feels like 4-5% abv. nimbleprop (8718) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Pours a muddy dark brown, nearly black, with some ruddy, thick head. Nose has a lot of spice happening, cinnamon, ginger, mild nuts, almost peanutty, slightly vegetal, some dark chocolate, dark malt. Flavor is similar, more malt in the mouth, some dark chocolate, nutty, spice. Thin finish. Not bad. SudsMcDuff (8468) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2013

750 ml bottle purchased at the Brewery. Bottle on 2-14-14 at 5.9%. Slowly diminishing tan head on a pitch black liquid. Aroma is quite nice, chicory root, ginger and chocolate bars. Light smoke.
Flavor starts with smooth chocolate, followed by light charcoal and then transitions into ginger and chicory that gives it a brightness that lightens up the malt flavor. Also has a light earthy note as well. The body is really much more thin then people may want in a stout. I think thicken up the body would turn this from good, to exceptional. The brewer’s creativity does show a great deal in this stout and overall is tasty.
