pours black with a medium tan head. aroma is malt, toast, hint of coffee. The taste is substantial. Dark malt, bitter coffee. Heavy. Long bittersweet finish. Good beer, but I wouldn’t want to session it all night. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head, the aroma has nice notes of light roast with some coffee as well, the flavor has a good amount of coffee at first with some burnt malt and chocolate in the finish, nice mouthfeel, not bad at all.

12 ounce bottle from Binny’s. Dark sticky pour. Some cherry, chocolate, and light body. alexsdad06 (10430) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle picked up at Woodman’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, a mix of bitter dark chocolate and sweeter, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, decent body, some mild plus bitterness to the finish, the nose is a bit better than the flavor, overall pretty good.
