deaconmike (417) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Deep walnut, almost black with thin tan cap and significant lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Semi sweet taste which is mostly roasted malt, some bitter chocolate comes through with coffee notes - taste is smooth, a hint of hop bitterness to finish. Body is lighter than I would have liked, although there is some creaminess to it. It’s a fair beer, smooth drinking, but not very complex and a little too thin for my taste.
