On tap at the Malthouse here in Madison...the color was dark brown, almost black/brown. The head was off white and reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was roasted coffee and some chocolate notes too a lesser degree. The flavor was a smooth malt, a bit of sweetness, and mild bitterness coupled with a moderate roasty dry finish. The body was lighter than I had anticipated. Overall a good brew.

Had this on tap when eating there this past weekend. Reviewed from notes. This brew had a deep chocolate brown color with an off white head that settled to nearly no cap. The aroma was light with hints of coffee, burnt malt and a little chocolate. The taste was a little sweet and there was only light carbonation. Not to much hop presence to balance the sweet taste. The body was lighter than expected as well. This was a decent brew but nothing that blew me away.

I enjoyed this beer on tap at Titletown. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a nice black color with a billowy tan head. Only way to make this look better would have been to serve it in a mug.

Smell: Roasted malt and a hint of caramel. Nice and subdued.

Taste: Just as the smell suggests, but more sweet here than in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very smooth.

Drinkability: Very drinkable brew and an excellent representation of this style. Glad to see this reappeared on the tap list.

Appearance is an opaque beauty with a wispy head. Little lacing. Nose is coffee and chocolate and solvent. Dreamy. Taste is similar to nose with meat and just a tad too much bitterness; for my tastes anyway. Drinkability and mouthfeel were great and decent respectively. Prost!
