(Bottle). Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa and some alcohol. Deep brown complexion with tan head and lots of glass lacing. Flavor is well roasted with bakers cocoa and just a bit of alcohol. Perfect choice for the first night of the season below 30 degrees F. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with finger of tan head. Nose is coffee beans, roast, chocolate. Taste has an oatmeal/cereal grain thing going on, sweet upfront, chocolate, coffee beans. Super smooth. Almost a bit of a dried fruit note adding to the sweetness. Really quite good.

stevoj (4586) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2014
On tap at the Growler Station @ Albertsons. Dark and heady, smooth despite the elevated ABV. Initial high, fluffy beige head. Sweet dark roast malts, hints of dark chocolate, a little alcohol on the nose, and definite warmth at the finish. Velvety and slick. Worth seeking out.

Bottle to beer tulip. 2014 brew. Pour is cola brown with a one finger beige head. Aroma is dark coffee and dark chocolate. The coffee is light. Taste is dark chocolate, malt, and a tiny bit of dark roast coffee. The finish is somewhat slick and mildly carbonated. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
