COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust dark ale is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Caramel, molasses and chocolate flavors fill the palate. Its sweet start is perfectly balanced by a roasted dry finish.

Draft in a flight at BJís in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Probably a lot better than the low ratings indicate, and was really pretty good, especiallypaired with the All Night Burger.

On nitro. Pours up a dark brown, nearly black, with moderate tan head. Slight smoky, roasted aroma. Taste is nutty with a slight smoke and coffee presence. Smooth and creamy from the nitro, but still thin and watery with not enough body. Much lighter palate than expected.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6643) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Sampled on nitro draft at the Frederick MD location this beer poured a black color with a huge creamy beige head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was toasty and a bit smoky with vanilla and coffee notes. The flavor was smooth, toasty, and woody with vanilla cream and light fruity hops. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied and very creamy. Solid.

On nitro tap at BJís in Fort Collins. Brown/black appearance with a lingering tan head. The aroma is smoky, burnt plastic, earth and light molasses. Similar flavor, light roasted and vegetal with a meaty, light smoky finish. Way off, I could barely stomach it. Yuck.
