Black in color with a khaki head. Nose is slightly smokey, but there is a really nice chocolate character to it as well. Cocoa, roasted malt, and a touch of caramel. Nice sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of chocolate, some roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of caramel. Nice creaminess, too.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Faint aroma of chocolate and light dark fruit. Black with brown highlights. Beautiful brown head fades too quickly. Chocolate is well pronounced on flavor with a moderate (nicely) roast backbone. Roast lingers. Assertive bitterness.
