Thankfully currently on tap at Jack Astorís. Black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma was nice. Rosted malt, coffee, a little vanilla. Light and soft. Smooth with a slightly sweet finish. This is the best Hop City beer Iíve had yet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black, appearing dark red when held to light. Tan foam. Aroma of voffe, espresso, malt. Body light and effervescent. Bold malty espresso flavour. Pleasant mild bitterness. Finish is looong and dominated by bold coffee, espresso flavours. Bold yet surprisingly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep auburn with a decent tan head leaving sparse lacing. Aroma of roast coffee, malts and notes of sweet caramel. Taste follows nose, adding some dark cocao into the mix but my draft had such high carbonation that the brew had an almost soda like mouth feel. Aftertaste of burnt sugar, roasted malts and mild alcohol bitterness. A decent brew but would have been more enjoyable without the super high dose of CO2.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a tight tan head. The aroma is great. Nice dark malt and cocoa with a bit of chewy dark malt character. Toast and a little bit of cocoa and coffee. Some nice toastiness and a little bit of clean dark malt. Lovely brew - very clean.
