Bottle 12 oz. Pours lite yet thick at the same time. Aroma has the hint of smooth chocolate vand coffee to it. Hits the palete with force and stay with it leaving a nice warm feeling afterwords. This is by far one of the best beers that I have tried, I would give it a try if i were you.

beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 12 oz bottle-Pours very dark w/a quickly deminishing tan head & high carbination-Looks like a Pepsi!! Very robust roasted malt flavor, long bitter dry finish grows on you as you drink it. Subtle flavors you dont taste on the first drink. Good after dinner sipping beer, like a brandy or barley wine w/the same kind of kick! Rerate-really enjoyed this upon trying it again, maybe Im just more appreciative of this style as I have developed a more refined palate. Could really taste the full flavors more-chocolate, roasted nuts, & coffee. Long full finish.

Bottle / Snifter. I can understand why this gets the rating it gets. Poured completely opaque in the glass with a 1 finger thick mocha colored head. Roasted malty, chocolate nose. Taste of dark chocolate and roasted malts, brandy-ish with a finish of black coffee with a little cocoa sprinkled in. Alcohol is dangerously subtle. A very enjoyable brew!!
