On tap at brewpub and a growler for home. Amazing amazing beer. Cocoa notes throughout and a must try if you're at the pub.

Draft at brewpub and on cask. Poured dark brownish black with tan head that laced well. Nose was black patent and choc malts, cacao. Tasted rich, smooth, with the roasty malt up front and some cacao and hops in the finish. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Tap at Rustico Alexandria. Pours a clear, deep ruby to maroon. Spotty tan lace. Nose is quite rich with dark chocolate, coffee, cookie, vanilla, black cherry. Taste is quenching, lighter bodied, lightly roasty and bitter, very drinkable and sessionable. Palate is acidic, lactic, big lemon juice. Much richer nose than expected for style. Very nice. Fiancé rating : 4.0 JAXSON (605) - 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.

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. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2014
