12 oz bottle. $1.67 in mix-a-6 at Binny’s, Dec 2011. Chocolate and coffee3 roast nose. Pillowy brown head that lingers for quite a while. Solid black color. Manages to keep a low carbonation level suited for this style. But the first sip is very harsh and astringent. Let it sit to answer some Tweets, come back to find it’s mellowed a little, but still has a bitter coffee character. I just can’t get behind it. Properly bitter to mark the Blackhawks season ending tonight, I guess.
Bottle. Pours black. Aroma and taste are light roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Holtguy (178) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Pours dark brown with bubbly tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is burnt malt, bitter dark chocolate. Fizzy with all the bubbles. Overall I liked the beer, but it’s not very Squatchy. These beer names are just random, right? There’s no rhyme or reason for them. They are almost like band names. One day when a beer comes along named Satan’s Death Basket or some other random string of words, then we’ll know we are at critical mass. rondphoto (4490) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque dark brown, frothy tan head, sprays of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is assertive burnt roasted malt that adds chocolate and coffee as it moves to medium, but aggressive carbonation on the swallow, followed by light bittering in a long finish. Heavy on the bitter side, right from the beginning, but, not bitter from hops. A decent brew that has a light body, and a full, powerful taste. TheBeerBulldog (17) - Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Middle of the road stout. Pours dark with foamy tan head. Overly carbonated for my liking, gave a mouth feel of a bud light. The taste is pretty good, but nothing special. Again pretty middle of the road in my opinion. Would probably pass more as a porter than a true stout. Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2015

12 ounce bottle from Kroger Athens, OH, opened 7/18/14. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized fizzy brown head. Poor head retention. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, mild hops. The taste is chocolate, roast, vanilla, dark fruits. Thin bodied. Decent. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bitter and slightly tart. Not sure if this is a bad bottle or if this is what it is supposed to taste like. bartlebier (4118) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
12oz bought somewhere along the road in WI, 09/2013. Pours exquisitely rich coffee with rich espresso crema. Tangy aroma of liquorice and filter coffee, continued in taste, only getting more riche and chocolate-full as it warms, with a thinner liquid tobacco edge. Very well balanced, up until the dry roast finish.
