Draft - Light roast malts and a light perfumy hop profile. Jet black with a nice brown head. Roasty malts and a very light hop notes. Not nearly as hoppy as hoped.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap with both CO2 and cask... first time I’d say I preferred CO2! With CO2, long lasting, thick white head. Dark. Mild aroma. Slight bitter hops with sn emphasis on bitter malt. Edges closer to a porter than a black IPA.
