Not a bad brew. Nothing special though. Left me wanting a little more. No creaminess to this brew...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Midnight black ale with a mid-sized, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The nose supplies ample notes of espresso, cocoa and scorched malts with a subtle kiss of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor provides lots of coffee and cocoa layered upon caramel and tangy, bitter hops. Finishes nutty, then a touch tangy.

Had this on tap today, simply too bitter. I like porters, coffee, chocolate, even smoky, but this just sat wrong. Too bitter, like overly strong espresso.

On tap at (No shit) Fucking Applebee’s. Blow me over with a fucking feather! Poured clear black, with q reddish core. Thin tan head, fine lacing. Nose is tight, with black coffee, sweet licorice, molasses, and bitter chocolate. This isn’t a giving or generous nose, it’s very tight, but the complexity is there... Flavours of roast, soap, spice/heat, molasses, creosote. After a 15 hour fucking drive, sitting in a fucking Applebee’s at fucking midnight, this drank pretty fucking good.
