10/26/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. Black pour, dark brown with red when held to the light, under a small brown head that fades to a skin and dies. Mild sour chocolate smell with day old coffee and paper. Mild watered down day-old coffee with hints of hot chocolate and metal... Hmmm. chaz01 (190) - Miamisburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2010
12 ounce bottle from the beer of the month club poured into a goblet style beer glass. Thick, dark and opaque that reflects a ruby shine with a bit thin tan head recedes quickly. Aroma of chocolate milk and roasted malts.
Beer starts with some initial earthy tones that gradually builds flavor profile to chocolate, roasted coffee and some nutty earth qualities. Finishes with a dry cocoa flavor. Creamy mouthfeel and somewhat light bodied for such a dark beer. If you are looking for a big, thick, dark beer, this isn’t it. Nice session beer that you could easily have more than one, especially iwth the 4.0% ABV. Would pair nicely with steak or beef dish.

Bottle from a box that I got. Cool. Ruddy brown color with a tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate with bitter cocoa. Flavor is watery cocoa with a small bitter flavor. Kinda weak.

0.33L bottle, stable creamy head, clear deep brown colour, aroma of light roasted malt, hay and barnyard, flavours of light roasted malt and coffee, short aftertaste and a bit diluted. A little on the light side but still quite drinkable. YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - SEP 23, 2010
Bottle: aroma, chocolaty, cocca powder, some weak coffee and some roasted malt, all very mild and gentle, not assertive, the flavor is pretty the same but weaker, a lot weaker, mild hoppy bitterness, mild licorice, some metallic notes, watery, decent and drinkable but nothing special.
