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!

Sampled from the tap at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with some chalky dark grains and a bit of coffee. Flavor has more sweet chocolate but still mainly bitter dark grains, roasted malts and a touch of coffee.

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)
