Not much head and very little aroma. This beer has more of a coffee bitterness than the chocolate that I was expecting. If there was chocolate here, it seems to have been washed away by the somewhat watery taste. Ok beer, a little disappointed......

No head whatsoever. Very little carbonation. No bottling date so not sure how old it is. I drank this the day i bought it.
I had higher expectations from a microbrew. Although ive never had a beer from Bison brewery i cannot imagine a microbrew wanting to put their name on a beer like this.

A: Pours a midnight black with a deep tan head that disappears almost instantly.

S: Weak smell of dark chocolate and coffee.

T: Thin, watery flavor of old coffee. I don't get much in the way of chocolate here. Leaves a sour, coffee-grainy taste.

M: Very little carbonation or body.

O: Weak, thin and sour is all I can say.
