Draft. Blackish beer with a dark tan head. Roast and chocolate aroma with light fruitiness. Roast and light toffee flavor with malt, light fruit, and light chocolate. Medium-plus bodied. Roast and light chocolate lingers with toffee and light fruit. Roast fades mid-way and fades into more pronounced fruit. marcus (10740) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 16, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours purplish brown with a decent tan head and a fruit and treacle aroma. There is a chocolate and molasses flavor with a hint of bluberry. This would be an excellent brew, except it is a bit too watery. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 10, 2011
Black with a fizzy off white head. Chocolate and roasted grain aroma and taste with subtle blueberry and a sweet finish.
