Crowler. Poured a dark black with a thing sudsy off white head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor followed the nose with light hints of vanilla as well. Medium body, touch thin, still perfectly carbed, and a pretty smooth finish.

On tap at Cycle Brewing. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Roasted malt aromas. Dark roasted malts and baker’s chocolate notes dominate. Some bitterness from the malts. Above average body and mouthfeel.

Sample pour of darkness with a thing off white head. Roasted malts and sweetness on the nose. Flavors are smooth roasted malts, light toasty, sweet, almost marshmallow quality. Really enjoyable and fairly robust compared to many of Peg’s offerings well done

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Excellent retention. The aroma is roasty and presents a boatload of dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor leans sweet, but provides lots of deeply roasted malt and dark, burnt mocha. Finishes charred and bittersweet.
