Draught. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is roast malt and chocolate. Flavor is smooth toasted malt, chocolate, molasses, a hint of hops. Quite smooth, and hides the 8.25% ABV very well. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at Yard House, Houston. It pours dark brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is rich, earthy roast, loads of coffee grounds, toasted brown bread and bit of meatiness almost. The taste is bitter, earthy roast, charred wood, filter coffee, coffee cake, toasted nut, wood and some alcohol through the finish. Medium - full body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Not a huge amount of depth to it, but enjoyable enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Dark brown pour, fair sized head, livelier carbonation. Sweet Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, black coffee dominate the aroma and taste with a healthy blast of bitter hops. Caramel and nuts in the aftertaste. Surprisingly thinner body. Drinks like a coffee infused black IPA (say, whatever happened to Black IPA anyways?)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.
Appearance: Dispensed a deep, black body with half an inch of mocha-toned foam.
Smell: Boldly chocolaty aromatics atop a blunted roasted character with touches of scorched heavy cream, candied caramels, molasses and a vein of dark fruitiness.
Taste: As with the aroma, very heavy and forward on the chocolate backed by a decided creaminess. Fairly sweet akin to melty ice cream. A little touch of dark fruitiness within. A roastiness is present but rather restrained. Warming alcohol. Lightly roasty, heavily chocolaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Charmingly smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Terrifically wonderful.
