On tap at the brewery, poured a pitch black color, with aromas of coffee, and vanilla. Taste follows the aroma, and if you wait for it there is a hint of chocolate, with some roasted malts.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Brewpub: Black, thick off white head. Nose of dry roast, nice ry thin roasty flavor, creamy mouthfeel and a thin body to accentuate. Best guinness clone I’ve had in a while, which doesn’t make it good.

The nitro helped this one a bit I think. Body made up for flavor. Dry roasted malts and cocoa with some coffee grinds and moss. Odd butterscotch flavor and lingers a bit. Not that bad overall.
