Draft at Park Lane in Hampton. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasty but slightly tart with yogurt, yeast, cocoa and chocolate notes. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate yogurt, soft yeast, earthy notes, cocoa and faint caramel. Body is medium and creamy with a soft carbonation. Light tartness as well. Ends with more roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa, light coffee, yogurt and earthy notes. Nice! MikeJslc (778) - USA - NOV 3, 2012

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. This beer is a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and hops in the nose. Medium body with a roasty character of chocolate malt and coffee, plus some dark fruit in the background. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
