Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours almost pitch black witha thick, creamy head of dark tan foam. The nose is lots of roasted malt, coffee, and mocha . The flavor has lots of coffee and roasted bitterness. There is a nice creamy mocha note in there too. Pretty rich body but not cloying. Fairly lengthy coffee and roasted malt finish. A surprisingly good offering from Saranac. Definitely worth trying. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a dark dark brown, thin light tan head. Thick fudge nose, with some caramel & nuts...flavors have some sharp roasted malts with equally sharp bittering hops, bitter chocolate, slight black marker, some alcohol..fairly full bodied and fairly bitter too. Not too shabby actually though I think the malt flavors are hard to grasp with that level of bitterness in the way. DiarmaidBHK (5947) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours black from bottle with a thin khaki head. The aroma smells of furniture polish and burned malt. Thinner mouthfeel then I was expecting. Fair amount of alcohol on the tongue. Finish has a tad of bitterness which adds something to the beer. Pretty damn appalling! POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2011

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head recedes to skim the surface. Soy and chocolate aromas. Thin with soy, licorice and slightly soured espresso.
