This beer and I have a lot in common. Draft at the sourse. Very dark brown color, thin beige head, nice lacing. Aroma of hot cocoa with a bit of espresso. Taste is coffee and milk chocolate. Decent stuff. Theydon_Bois (19492) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Revolution Brewpub, Chicago - 04/11/12.
Very dark mahogony brown vergeing on light black, with a thin tan head that soon clears to a small lake and the edges.
Light roast malt on the nose, touch of chocolate, peppery, liqourice.
Tastes of roast malt, dark caramelised sugars, burnt tofee, touch of smoke.
Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation.
Nothing special, a small notch above average. mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Blind Tiger, pours dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt upfront, not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with a meaty quality to the toasted malt. Big body despite the low gravity. Not especially complex but a thick feel in the palate. Very good. yngwie (17052) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Can. An almost black one, topped by a small, dense light beige head. There’s coffee, dark chocolate and some brown sugar in the aroma. Hints of dried fruits too. It’s full bodied and smooth on the palate, semi dry and pleasantly carbonated. Brown sugar, prunes, some roasted malts and mocha. Some vanilla hints. Lasting finish. Very smooth and tasteful, well worth a revisit. 150207 jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Can from a generous trader. Pours black with off white tan head. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malt, milk sugar, lactose and vanilla bean. Medium body.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Sort of metallic aroma, plenty of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. A little bit grassy and lightly sweet from some toffee notes. Tastes of roasted malt and coffee for the most part. A little bit metallic, some grass, dark chocolate, and mild toffee and molasses sweetness. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
