3.38/5 rDev -5.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: Poured a small chocolate colored head. No lacing but some alcohol legs.
S: Chocolate notes, booze, coffee and roastiness.
T: Big chocolate flavor, some coffee and a ton of alcohol. This beer is unbalanced. The booze is over powering.
M: Alcoholic and carbed. Chewy though.
O: No head but awesome chocolate flavor. Just a tad boozy for me.
Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5 rDev -2.2%

Deep deep brown with a deep tan head that dissipates over time. lots of chocolate on the nose, some coffee, big roast character, some charcoal and asphalt.
Full bodied but the bright carbonation makes it feel lighter in the mouth. Some roasted barley flavor up front roll into big rich chocolate flavor with some touches of coffee and roasted grains. Finishes with just enough bitterness to balance, some acrid flavors but nothing too off. Slightly tinny on the finish as well. Finishes with some lingering tannins and an overall chocolate flavor. Mild bitterness lingers as well. Overall pretty good.

3.6/5 rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Served on-tap at Little Town NJ in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours an opaque but clear jet black in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with some lighter notes of dark chocolate.
T: Light to moderate flavors of dark roasted malts with some very light notes of dark chocolate. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with just shy of moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.
O: Easy to drink and relatively smooth but the overall flavors and aromas are a touch light for my personal preference. Would likely pair very well with a lot of different foods since it is rather light.
