This beer is dirty. The nice and nasty kinda dirty! When poured into a glass I was unable to see any light pass through, even holding it up to the sun. Strong dark smell, strong dark taste. Think dark chocolate with dark burnt coffee with an earthy feel. My wife bought me three 6 packs (18 beers) and I went through them in about a week. My liver hurts... Hurts sooo good!

Amazing! The appearance was dark brown, almost black with a thick coffee colored head. The smell had a great amount of malt with hints of coffee in the nose. The taste was extraordinary with coffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. The sweetness wasn't overpowering though with a mellow malty finish. Highly refreshing and even though it's summer, I found this beer goes great with bbq or any kind of meat. This was a great beer all around. If you're a fan of the dark stuff, this is a great next try.

Sampled last night on 6/6/14. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very deep brown to black in color with a small beige head. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts with a hint of coffee. The taste is all of that and more with a hint of caramel, smokey roasted nuts with lots of flavor! Very tasty and goes down easy. A great brew!
