Rich aroma has notes of caramel, molasses and roast quality coffee with a touch of licorice. It pours an opaque warm sable just a couple whiskers above black and a fairly thick and fluffy light tan head. Flavor has good smoky, molasses, coffee and caramel notes. Dusty texture has slightly above average body but not a whole lot of fizz. This one is worth sniffing out.

Tried to pour it rigorously, but I only managed a quarter-inch of light beige head. Red hues in a translucent dark brown body. 3.5

Well, I wouldn't call this 'robust' just yet. Barely a nose on this thing. Mildly grainy with a hint of medicinal notes and cocoa. 2.5

Metallic in taste. Chocolate is there with some bland coffee notes. Semi-roasted husky grains push through some bitter bite. The hops, however, are medicinal and a bit off. This might be an old bottle. Attenuated and off-kilter. The malts are decent, and I wish they were amplified a bit. 3.5

Not particularly smooth. Carbonation is just fine, but the body is a little weak. 3.5

I've had much better experiences with this beer, so I'm rating it a little higher than this experience. Still nothing special. 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A: Nice looking dark brown that turns opaque when fully poured. A powering and ivory two finger head maintains and laces where it leaves. Great looking beer.

S: Roasted malt, some chocolate scent. Maybe some sweet caramel.

T: Roasted malt, chocolate, some sweet and dark fruit.

M: Medium bodied with great coating and pleasant aftertaste. I think the aftertaste is more telling of the beer than the actual sip.
