Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of roast with a bit of backing dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is similar with roast and coffee up front and a bit of dark chocolate in the finish. A bit thin.

Pitch black with a small brown head. Heavy roast and chalky toasted grains and smoke, very robust but not heavy or huge. Lots of char and heavy, ashy roast. Very nice, with more smoke in the nose than flavor.

Growler. Poured a very deep brown with a tall, well-retained creamy caramel head. Aroma was of deeper chocolate and caramel notes.. a bit airy, and quite complex.. Very nice! Flavor was of chalky chocolate and caramel with good use of burnt chocolate and black patent malts.. mild chocolate and coffee bitterness.. felt a bit old. Medium-bodied with high-ish bitterness. This was some really good stuff!
