badgerben (4651) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Many thanks to Craig for including this one! Black color with a small head. Caramel and light roasted barley aroma, with something that I really can not place. Kind of Windex-y, but not in a bad way. Grainy flavor. Very burnt barley, but not acrid. Strong coffee. This was really enjoyable!

Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 02/2012)
Black opaque color, good creamy brown head. Milky toasted aroma with hints of HP Sauce. Crisp carbonation. Quite good body for this ABV. Milky, lactose, coffeish flavor. Sweetish, milk stout -like stout. Cask version is better than this pasteurised bottled one.
