Sample at the tap room. Black pour with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of charred malt, chocolate and mild hops. The finish is roasty with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glossy appearance, nearly black, with an average size beige head and a fair amount of lacing. Earthy aroma of toasted malts emitting hints of coffee and pine nuts. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate and tree bark gently influenced by herbal hops. Aftertaste lacked a strong body. Smooth, softly carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.
