Aroma and flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a dryish/acidic finish. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2016
Deep dark brown body, with small tan head. Aromas of burnt malt and hints of chocolate. The flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. shigadeyo (3749) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Chocolate, strong, dark malts, and bit of char; near black, opaque; dark malts sweet, but bitter, chocolate, licorice, a bit of molasses, earthy bitterness in the finish; full body, milky smooth; quite good, but the robust porter was better. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is a bit faint but I get some nice chocolate and roasted malt notes, as well as a bit of cream. The flavor is very similar. The roasted malt and dark chocolate notes are pretty nice, and are complemented by some cream. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Ratman197 (14973) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee and cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and burnt coffee with a smooth lingering roasty fnish.

Bottle. Very dark and fairly dense looking pour with a brown spotty head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, espresso. Similar on taste. Quite good. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Bottle] Jet black colored pour with about a half inch of cocoa colored foam on top. Heavy roast, ash, charred grains and coffee aromas. Bitter chocolate, espresso, tobacco, wood smoke, creosote and darker fruits in the taste. A herbal hoppiness cuts into the otherwise malty character of this beer. A little chalky. Finishes dry, with hints of grain husks. Tasting notes from 7/2014. GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, little chocolate. Taste is creamy, roasted malt, chocolate. Nice mellow drink. Little bit of citrus hops in the finish. Ok lacing. drowland (8829) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
12oz bottle thanks to cbfobes, June 2014. Black pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, mild coffee, doughy malts, toasted caramel. Rich flavor, chocolate and coffee apparent again, from the malts, a distinct bitterness hits the tongue, borderline astringent, not much hop presence. Not bad. pumpmaster (1403) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $9.99/6-pack. Very good.
