Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, fudge, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite rich all around.

A - Pours thick, body black and a one finger or less espresso head.

S - Dark chocolate and coffee up front. There's a roasted malt throughout, almost char like. Sweet molasses notes on the end.

T - Charred roasted malts, sweet molasses, dark chocolate and slight nuttiness.

M - Heavy bodied and low carbonation. Smooth and velvety body.

O - To me, the char was the one factor I wasn't a fan of. Otherwise, it's a well done beer.

A: A small, less then a half finger, head made of dark mocha colored head emerged and quickly receded. Black opaque beer, alcohol legs sustain for a while as well as the spotty lacing that kicks up when swirled.

S: Moderate dark chocolate aroma with caramel and smoke. Light vanilla with sweet toffee and roasty notes coming through as it warms up. Sweet impression overall with fruity esters. Very low hop aroma with a hint of alcohol.

T: Lots of malt flavors going on – On the darker side I'm picking up milk chocolate, roasted, and dark chocolate flavors along with a hefty dose of smoke character. Caramel, vanilla, candi sugar and raisin flavors in the middle malts. Sweet impression is moderately strong with a medium bitterness that comes of some what harsh but earthy.

M: Silky smooth creaminess with a large body and low carbonation. There is an interesting mouth drying sensation I get that makes me think it was barrel aged, similar to the tannins an oak barrel imparts - Medium astringency. Medium level of alcohol warming.

O: I don't get much, if any maple flavor form the beer but it may add to a sweetness. That aside it's got some interesting smokey and chocolate flavors melding with a soft mouthfeel. I don't know if it's barrel aged but I get some flavors that make me think it is, overall nice beer.
