Had on tap at the tasting room.Poured into a standard pint glass a dark chocolate brown with a lighter beige head atop.Aromas of chocolate malts and leafy/herbal hops,the chocolate malt aromas really stand out.Flavors are like the nose with a real pronounced chocolate maltiness with a nice shot of herbal and grassy hops in the finish.A well made beer,the hops don't hit very hard but it has good complexity.

Poured from the tap at the brewery this had a chocolate brown coloring with a thick foamy head and a ton of lacing.

The scent held a lot of chocolate malt with a bit of caramel. There was some dry floral hoppiness and some barley grains.

The flavors held many of the properties of the scent as the chocolate malt comes out first. The hops then get mingled within the caramel and grains.

The feel is smooth but the carbonation is little high.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: dark amber, blackish, thin white head with a thick lacing that is maintained throughout when tilting the glass. The head has dispersed making it easy to see through it.

The aroma is chocolatey hoppy, kinda reminds me an imperial IPA or choclatey stout.

The taste contains roasted malts with a chocolatey taste on the forefront. It's a very smooth beer. I can't taste the alcohol.

The mouthfeel is thin with slight carbonation

Overall, this is a great beer. I was very pleased with the result of this one. I can tell that Mayday cares about having a great quality brew.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, I always like to try something local.
Standard pint glass, dark brown with a light beige head, good retention and thin lace.
Aroma of some chocolate malts and leafy/herbal hops, with the cocoa and chocolate really dominant. Chocolate is main flavor, with a finishing kick of herbal and grassy hops. Pretty complex, more flavor as it sits.
Medium body, holds the hoppiness at the end.
A nice choice, well made.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Black Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, hint of pale malt, and slight hop. Overall, decent beer overall, nothing either mundane or extraordinary.
