Black body and khaki head. Smells of burnt malt, fruity yeast (makes me think "English"), subtle warm spices, and chocolate. I really enjoy the malts in this one. Not overwhelmed by coffee flavors. Nice fruitiness. Strong bitterness and alcohol warmth in the finish. Mouthfeel is solid. Could be a little thicker to match the rich flavor. Overall, this is a winner from Karbach.

On tap at Anvil.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a large brown head. The aroma has some big chocolate notes, as well as some roasted malt. The flavor is also very bold. I get a ton of chocolate and roasted malt, as well as a hint of coffee. The beer is fairly sweet overall and very enjoyable. The alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This stuff tastes, smells and feels really strong. It's very manly. You should get a bottle at a bar and just leave it on the table all night so people will know how cool you are. Tear off the label and bring it home with you.

This beer is GOOD but it's strong. After two 22's you will not be cool even though you think you are and girls won't like you because you'll be really loud and arrogant. Take it easy with this stuff.
