Pours a five finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted chocolate nose and flavor is roasted chocolate and coffee. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Best by Apr 2015. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH

Bottle from Bert's
Deep brown with faint highlights of garnet, smallish off white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, light earth, and hints of toffee and butterscotch. The flavor is roasty chocolate and sweet caramel maltiness with again some diacetyl. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice beer except for my hypersensitivity to Diacetyl.

From the 650 ml. bottle with an expiration date of April 2015. Sampled on January 23, 2015.

It pours nearly jet black with little to no off-white head and basically no lacing.

The aroma is of dark malts, melted chocolate, yeast, and a nice earthy hop ester.

Medium body.

Good dark malt character up front in the flavor and then the piercing earthy bitterness kicks in. Lingers for a bit. It won the bronze at GABF in 2010 and I see no reason to question that decision.
