Delicious and smooth. First sip is reminiscent of a cup of coffee, and almost tastes as such. Roasty bitterness, but smooth with a hint of sweetness. Tasty, tasty, tasty,,,,, XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Very faint chocolate scent and taste. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. It pours pitch black with a creamy, dark tan head. The nose has a good dose of flint, earth, and slight burnt notes. The flavor thankfully isn’t so dry. A bit of lactose sweetness up front, nice roasted malt notes, a little flint, milk chocolate, and very slight burnt notes on the back end. Well rounded with lots of flavor. Full bodied with low, creamy carbonation and a lasting bitter finish. Quite nice. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma features a lot of chocolate and a good bit of roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. The chocolate and nut notes really come through, as does some roasted malt. I also get some oats and lactose and cream notes in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2012
