Black pour with a khaki head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, and dark fruit. Some ash, a slight sweetness, and earthy hops. The flavor is decent enough. Some roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. A bit acidic and fairly dry, but a touch of licorice and fruit sweetness. Light bitterness on the finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Brownish amber pour with a huge frothy head. Nice little roasted nose on this. Crisp palate, easy drinking, decent roasty flavor. Best one of today’s lineup here.
