Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps 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, fudge, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a medium 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 that is quite rich all around.

A - Pours thick, body black and a one finger or less espresso head.

S - Dark chocolate and coffee up front. There's a roasted malt throughout, almost char like. Sweet molasses notes on the end.

T - Charred roasted malts, sweet molasses, dark chocolate and slight nuttiness.

M - Heavy bodied and low carbonation. Smooth and velvety body.

O - To me, the char was the one factor I wasn't a fan of. Otherwise, it's a well done beer.

Everything about this is great, save the bitter finish, which doesn't appear to be lessening over time.
