Draft... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The aroma is a bold and luxuriant swirl of mocha - a marriage of deeply roasted espresso and an 85% cacao chocolate bar. There’s a nice, subtle, vanilla component here as well. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes deep, carbonic notes of espresso, charcoal and dark chocolate, flanked by a burnt, bittersweet, mocha and vanilla finish.
