From bottle. Pitch black, little syrupy, foamy coffee brown head that fades. Not getting much of aroma, little hint of coffee maybe. Taste is dominated by the coffee, nice bitterness, dark chocolate, alcohol seems well hidden. Smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Pretty nice

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a beautiful opaque brown with a big dark tan head that takes a little while to settle. Great looking beer. Notes of chocolate, coffee, cardboard, burnt toast, tobacco, earth, and roast. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a chalky, roasty mouthfeel. It seems kind of old; or at least it initially did before growing on me a little.
