Pours black with a foamy, medium beige head. The aroma is big on both coffee and roasted malts, along with lighter amounts of chocolate and smoke. Chocolate and coffee dominate the taste. I still find a healthy amount of roasted malts. There are minor amounts of caramel and licorice, and a long aftertaste of chocolate. All of this is accompanied by some mild sweetness. Medium bodied, creamy in texture, and soft in carbonation. Solid. Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 17, 2017

Had been wanting to try this one for some time now and saw it for the first time at Tiger! Tiger! Would have insta-purchased it, but had already insta-purchased a Dogfish Head 120. Looking forward to this one.
Poured a pitch black color with 3-to-4 fingers of frothy khaki-tan head when I got it. Tiny amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good spotty lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25)
Smelled black coffee, bitter dark chocolate, char wood, ashtray, anise, black licorice, roasty malts, almost cigarettes, burnt molasses and dark fruits. (Smell - 3.75)
Tasted much better than the nose. Got mocha, black coffee, char wood, ashtray, dark chocolate, anise, black licorice, roasty malts, nutty molasses and dark cocoa. (Taste - 4.50)
Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.25)
This got much better as it went down. Great for this time of the year. (Overall - 4.25)
