On draft at Coffee District. Can’t believe Brooklyn wanted to release a beer like this. Super dry (to be expected) but overall somewhat flavorless and not exciting

On tap at the Common Table.
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a good bit of chocolate in it, as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. There is a ton of dry cocoa notes in the flavor, as well as some roasted malt. The beer is very dry overall. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Pours almost black with a disappointing head. Smells richly of chocolate and coffee. Tastes like slightly peppery chocolate with a touch of coffee. Caramel and nutty notes. Finishes spicy and almost clean, with a slight smooth choosing on the tongue.
