Big roast and hop aromas. Dark coloured strong in alcohol hoppy and bitter with a crisp and slightly dry coffee roast finish. RCL (2032) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Nice cocoa aroma with hints of black olives. Flavor: this has some bugs in it - probably lacto - quite lemony tart. Really unfortunate, as the nose had some promise. fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle 1pt. 6fl.oz.hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Clear dark brown color with a huge, frothy - creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is light heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, light licorice, vanilla and tobacco notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy chocolate sweet and chocolate - coffee bean bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is smooth and oily, carbonation is soft. 
22oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of burnt malts, roasty, some chocolate, and a little earthy. Tastes of the same roastiness, lighter coffee, earthy, and chocolate. I would say the roastiness and burnt quality dominate. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2009

Bomber thanks to Brandon! Poured crystal-clear medium-dark brown with a good lookin’ cap of tan head. The aroma picked up moderately-roasted black patent and dark chocolate maltage paired with dry earthy accents.. I couldn’t really tell what hops they put in here, but they gave a nice bright contrast to the dark malts. The flavor found well-roasted black patent primarily with dark chocolate providing more bitterness and character on the edges.. a touch of earth and tar around.. finished very dry and a touch grainy. Medium-bodied with average carbonation on the palate.. very dry.. not great, but it certainly didn’t fail in any department. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Nitro pour. Lots of coffee on the nose. Perhaps a touch of butter. Pours black with a creamy nitro head. Coffee mocha sweetness with roast that comes through in the finish. Smooth, creamy, dry and roasty. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Black with a thin cream head. Aroma is heavy coffee and chocolate, caramel, and cream. Taste is mocha, coffee, an interesting faint lemon, but doesn’t seem like an infection...? NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Courtesy of Acertain. Thank you Andrew. Nice concentrated cocoa, chocolate and coffee aroma. Black with dark ruby hints and a firm tan head. Big flavor concentration. Roast coffee, chocolate, stewed dark fruits. Toasty and roasty in the finish. Nice beer. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Appearance: Pours an opaque, very dark brown body with a wispy, off-white head.
Smell: Dry, dust-covered dark maltiness with hints of chocolate and roasted nuts.
Taste: Dark malts, lightly sweet, and a taste of chocolate fall out in favor of questionable tart, lactic sourness. The aroma was alright and the taste started out decent, but boy did it ever nosedive into the ground. Bummer.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Gah! And I thought I was spoiled...
