Can at RBSG. From notes. Chocolate and coffee but a thinner than expected texture. Regardless, I really like this one.

Can. Pours a dark brown black color with a light tan head. Coffe roast and notes of chocolate in the nose, slight oatmeal note as well. Medium mouthfeel. Roast coffee bitterness upfront gives way to bitter chocolate flavor. Pretty smooth. Lingering bitter after taste. Drinkable.

At tap at the MN State Fair. (unfortunately in a plastic glass...) Great dark color. Light enough for a hot day. Strong roast and bitterness. Awesome entry for this brewer.
