HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2007
22oz bottle: 2007 Release. Pours almost black with a fleeting medium tan head. Chocolate is the most noticeable aroma with a hint of coffee. Chocolate and roastiness come out in the taste that is clearly on the sweet end along with some alcohol burn on the finish. The mouth feel is appropriate to the style and lingers pretty nicely. This is a good beer overall but could benefit from a little better balance for the sweetness.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Pours next to black w/ a modest head that dies like Clint Eastwood took it down in a Dirty Harry scene. A thin fluffy ring is all that remains. Smells like cold melted chocolate. Full nectar w/ good carbonation. A moderate roast component drives the ship as the fat malty mocha copilot infuses the staff w/ its heavy slop. Moderately sweet w/ justified alcohol that tries to balance but fails miserably leaving green tinged grasses to wash away. The finish is long and sturdy leaving a well understood message with the drinker. This beer is decadent, warming, and overdone. There is a defined alcohol presence that disrupts the balance.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pours black with a little ruby red at the base with a small dark beige head. The aroma is sweet and dark chocolates with some alcohol. Very full dark chocolate flavor through-out with some dark cherries and a piney finish. A little alcohol present but seems to be fading a little as it sits. Palates a little thinner than it looks but still pretty solid.

xmarcnolanx (930) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Aroma is coffee and black malty red fruit and some indistinguishable harshness. Almost like carbonated hops. Appearance is a port/cola color with no head and nice legs. Taste is coffee, vanilla, and a slight rind and pine bitterness. Palate is middle of the road, no overt carbonation . Aroma is nice but not overwhelming and taste is well layered but not really roasty. Decent .
