Can... Pours clear and brown with flashes of copper and a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is simply chocolaty and nutty. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is fairly sweet, presenting a malty mingling of chocolate crème and toffee. Also, there is a very nice, deep roastiness here. Finishes toasty and bittersweet. Can courtesy of Bvery!

Pour on tap at Town Hall tap, dark brownish black pour with off white lacing head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, some caramel, grass, pine, hints of orange peel. Taste its a mix of dark chocolate, orange, pine into some spice, slight roast, coffee, finishing bitter, dry. Pretty nice.

Draft at the brewery. Yes, it’s black, with a thin tan top. It gives a java aroma. This drinks with a strong coffee flavor, but borders on the watery side. Nice bitter wake-me-up. (#5674, 8/29/2014)
