Excellent use of hops. Wonder what the heck they actually used back in 1856, but Im happy they went with what they did!

Tap at Beer Study. Thanks JD! Pour is dark black with opaque edges and one finger of tan head. Nose shows acidic black coffee and bitter chocolate and roast. Very heavy coffee flavor and bitter chocolate. Medium light body and dry.

Draft at brewery. Black pour with an off white head. Scent is roasty and sweet. Taste is coffee and roasted. Good taste but a tad thin.
