A nice black ale. Porter like qualities. Great flavor with nice malt and Coffey tones. The 7.5% alcohol is mixed in well. Well done Dark Horse

Should be renamed donkey Ass. This has no redeemable qualities

Awesome dark ale, good start, better finish. If you have a cigar light it with this extremely smooth dark beer

Good beer, mild coffee and chocolate notes... Unfortunately I compare all these types of beers to founders breakfast stout and I've only found one that can compete, Bell's Java stout... I know this isn't a stout but its about as close as you can get for an ale

Great microbrew. Goes down easy and lives large.

Hints of java bean combined with a rich dirty soily coppery irony tinny flavor atop a finish of sweet sweet brew

Good taste, like a stout. NB
