On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a one-finger tan head and minimal lace. Aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and licorice.
Taste is chocolate, cinnamon and roasted malts, with hints of light anise and coffee. Medium body, minimal carbonation, thin mouthfeel and a roasted finish. Cinnamon was too much for me.

May be infected bottle. Super foamy with the typical pillow heady stuff so no real aroma. Buteric citric acid tast going on. May be old bottle. Will try on tap when I can find it.
