Review from 6/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a very dark red brown amber with a two finger light tan head and light lacing. Nice aroma of cocoa, coffee, dark malt and dark fruit. Flavorful dark and roasted malt, dark fruits, cocoa; almost like a spiked malted milk. Belgian yeast and spicing is present and well integrated. Slight hop kick at the finish. A complex, great tasting ale or stout with a very nice flavor progression. Medium to creamy body. Impressive.
