I had this on tap at the Anaheim Brewery. It’s a black pour with a coffee/roasty nose, somewhat watery texture and a light mouthfeel.

The beer is black in color with a khaki head. Strong aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Some dark chocolate, earthy hops, mild oatmeal, and a touch of toast and molasses sweetness. The flavor is lightly bitter with a fairly heavy roasted malt profile. There’s some earthy hops, cocoa powder, coffee, and a light sweetness. Some molasses, toffee, and toast, but lightly watery.
