2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap into a pils glass at the flying saucer in San Antonio.
Has that pretty, cascading nitro look. Thick foamy tan head. Dark dark brown, that I coulnít see any light through. Smells of leather. Tasts of coffee, burnt malt, and leather, perhaps unsweetened cocoa. Not as sweet as it should be. There is a tannin bite to it that isnít particularly pleasant. Ok I gues, but kind of a let down.

A pint at Flying Saucer in San Antonio, TX. Smells of sweet caramel with a touch of coffee and molasses. Jet black with a dark tan, thick creamy head. Itís very inviting and almost looks fake. Flavor is slighly smokey with a strong coffee finish. Not nearly as sweet as it smells. Smooth & velvety with minimal carbonation. Lacing left entire glass "frosted".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the San Antonio Saucer. Poured a near opaque body topped with 1-inch of creamy, off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is roasty, fresh coffee, light sweetness and some milk chocolate. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, day-old coffee and lightly sweet. Very fine carbonation with a full mouthfeel. Short (coffee) bitter finish thatís slightly earthy. Better than expected.
