Growler shared by Jcwattsrugger. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of beef jerky, roasted chocolate malt, smoked chocolate malt, dark fruit and dark bread. Medium body. Much less jerky in taste than the nose.
Draft... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch-black with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly tanned head that hangs around forever. The aroma is a fantastic swirl of fudge, toasted tree nuts, brownies and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety with modest carbonation. The flavor features black mocha - deeply roasted espresso and burnt chocolate. Carbonic, bitter and slightly boozy in the lengthy finish.

Growler purchased at brewery, poured a dark back color with aromas of roast, chocolate syrup, coffee, light maple, and some earth. Flavors are the same with a little bitterness in the aftertaste, a nice little find from a new brewery. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
On draft at Southern. Pours a dark stout brown color with a tan head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate syrup, earth, cafe con leche, and coffee bitterness. Flavor follows with earth, coffee, chocolate, and some light Oreo cookie character. Earth, chocolate, and coffee up front, sweet chocolate in the mid, and earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium in body and lingering bitterness in the finish. blipp (9915) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Growler. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, burnt bread, light grainy notes, and hints of dark fruits, with some nice lingering roasted bitterness. Good stuff.
