On tap at Aftershock Brewing Company in Temecula, CA.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisp 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, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild 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 with some solid aromas and flavors.
Serving type: on-tap

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Huge khaki head atop a black body. Swirling makes it bigger. Never dies down.
Smell - Really roasty. Dark fruits. Like a cherry aroma. Chocolate.
Taste - Roasty as hell. That cherry flavor is back. Pushes the boundaries of tart. Something is off here.
Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Kinda tart. Doesn't feel heavy as a result of the carbonation.
Overall - Something must be wrong here. It's got a mild weirdness.

Very dark in the wine glass with a beige head. Not bad carbonation and suds appeal. Fairly thick mouthfeel, but not sticky. Fruity, chocolatey aroma.
Fairly sweet on the tongue with loads of dark malt. Less charred than some big stouts, but heavy on the burnt sugar. Roasted pears and cocoa. Winey and chalky at the same time. Eventually the bitterness emerges and stays fairly boldy to the end. Strong bitter chocolate taste with a hint of that cheap plasticky cherry candy. This tastes remarkably like Aftershock's Espresso Stout.
From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd. All four of the beers I've seen have the yellow wax dip.
