On draft at Hunahpu release. This beer is the new St. Patrick’s Day standard. It makes Guiness look like more of a wimpy beer than anything else. Pours dark brown/ black with an off-white head. Nose is cocoa, roast, earth, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is the same with lingering dry roast, coffee, and earth into the finish. Wonderful dry stout, outstanding for the style.

On tap at CCB. It was a hot day and this poured a nice clear deep dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma was coffee and cream. A bit dry on the palate but still enough sweetness to make it go down well and quick. This was very yummy!
