Can. Pitch black with a thick solid tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of smoke. Taste follows suit and adds light vanilla, coffee and soy sauce notes. Rich mouthfeel with strong carb for the style. Really good.

Had this at a share. A black oil like pour. Cocoa mainly on the nose. On the palate, there is roasted malt, cocoa, and just a hint of dark fruit. Glad I had the chance to try this.

Can... Black pour with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly tan head. Good retention. The bouquet is a luxuriant, malty swirl of brownie crusts, toasted almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Medium-bodied and oily with tickling carbonation. The hearty flavor is a marriage of roasty espresso and dark chocolate mocha. Robust, burnt, unsweetened-cocoa aftertaste. Can courtesy of ctipping!
