COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Weird pour. Im pouring it aggressively, and its there. About half finger head, but its so dense. It was like motor oil, glub glub. My glass seems like it should be more full. But anyway, dark brown. Sort of a foggy retention. Very light on top and middle, but building as it moves to rim.

Aroma is pretty rich. Lots of coffee, chocolate, caramel. Touch of alcohol. Dark fruit. Wine.

Taste is toasty from malt and coffee. Brown sugar, hint of vanilla. Not as much chocolate in the taste. Nuttiness. Hint of licorice at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium full. A little chalky. Alcohol is not hidden.

Overall, its not bad. Hide that alcohol and it could work. I might or might not buy it again. I might or might not recommend it. I would probably buy it again, if the price was right.

Ar: Wet malt and sherry--oxidation; cocoa powder, dark caramel. Ap: Black and opaque; very large tan head with good retention, leaves a ring of fine lacing sticking to the glass sides and a cap of dense foam. T: Cocoa and cherries; sharp, slightly tannic; cocoa and dark caramel; some treacle; sherry-like oxidation, with some sharp caramels. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation; finish is medium. O: This beer has some nice elements, but its muddled and suffers from some oxidation and sharpness.

On tap at Bangers, Austin. Excellent example of the style, smooth with complex roasted flavours and minimal acrid bitterness.

Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
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.

Black draft pour at the conservatory in Houston. Tons of creamy white head. Sweet and Cocoa flavors. Milky malty and very tasty

Johnsense (1630) - - SEP 4, 2016
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?)
