Dark with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is light roasted malts, chocolate, earth. Medium body. Cocoa, roasted malts, chocolate, and light earthy hops. Easy going beer. If the abv were a couple points lower this would be an all night kinda beer. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Draft at the brew pub. Pours pitch black with a small white head. The aroma Is chocolates with some licorice. The taste is sweet coffee with anise. JAXSON (611) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
This was stated to be some sort of hybrid of Storm King and Donnybrook. Pour is black with brown edges and a smaller fluffy head. Lots of coffee dust, unsweetened cocoa powder, with a light green hops finish. Dry, pleasant, and well done, but not something I’d order again as it’s not really my thing.
