ARH (733) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a shaker. The dark brown beer is topped by a light, yet dense, tan colored head that only retains a light amount and leaves no lace. The aroma is dark and smokey with notes of caramel, grains, fig, bread crust, and some more subtle notes of chocolate and coffee - the coffee strengthens by the end of the glass. The medium bodied beer is a nice balance between a moderate sweetness upfront with a slightly stronger, moderate bitter finish. It’s thin and smooth with a buzzy carbonation. Flavors of fig and roasted coffee dominate up front and it finishes with a pepper touch, caramel, and a light bitter wax. The aftertaste is mild with a light cloying wax and fig quality.

JonnyMadison (68) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Poured a thick white head, dark brown and opaque liquid. Good aroma, but taste was a bit a bit sour. A little syrupy, not unpleasant, but the aftertaste was not good at all.

Not much aroma, which isn't necessarily bad. It least it didn't smell horrible! Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful dark coffee color with a nice tan/brown head.

Picked up a bottle in a mix six in WI. Average beer - light on complexity and nothing noteworthy to remember after finishing the bottle.
