22oz bottle. Large brown head atop black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some bittersweet chocolate, roast, light pine. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, roast, some pineapple, light bittersweet chocolate that’s more pronounced in the finish. Medium body, light resin, quite drinkable for the ABV.

Pours pretty thick and dark with a decent creamy cocoa colored head. The aroma is nice too, some black licorice roasted malts and hops. Flavor brings a very well blended hop and roasted malt profile with no bite and satisfying creamy body. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2013

Bottle. Pours a deep black with a fairly thick brown head. Aroma leads with a huge kick of pine hops, then rounds out with chocolate and malt notes. Powerful flavor, with a lot of strong components vying with one another - assertive West coast hops, alcohol, chocolate and coffee. It doesn’t work together perfectly, but it’s interesting enough to be well worth the ride. halfonit (1365) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2013
In tap at Battleship. Pours pretty much pitch black with a thick brown head. Aroma is of hips, malts, smoke, a little chocolate and grapefruit. Decent body. No lacing. Favor is of hops, malt, smoke and some chocolate. Leaves a smoke & hop finish. Reminds me of a ipa/rauch combo. thornecb (5909) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours black into a shaker. Mocha conglomerate head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Dark chocolate and loamy garden aromas. Creamy dark chocolate upfront turning to dank resin and espresso in the lasting finish.
