Draft. Black with a small tan head. Very cold so not mix nose. Flavors bounce off the tongue with coffee and toffee up front. Burnt malts on the end. Body is a little chewy with a nice solid finish. Well done.

Bottle says it was bottled 9 months ago but I just bought it...uh oh. Pours jet black with fizzy tan head. Smell is acidic coffee. Roast malt, fair amount of yeast and light hops. Taste is roasty, hoppy but not too much so. Bitter coffee and charred malt flavor with a bright metallic like hop flavor peeking through roastiness. Medium full body and very prickly carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well.
