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.

Thankfully currently on tap at Jack Astor’s. 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 I’ve had yet.

On tap at the Cue and Cushion, pours a jet black with a slight foamy head. Aroma is dominated by large coffee, espresso, and rich malt notes. Tasting notes include caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, nice carbonation to this beer, and goes down quite easily! Very drinkable..almost to drinkable! Definitely a great beer!

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.

On tap. Brick with creamy light brown head. Roasted malt cinnamon light cocao nibs, hint of hops. Moderate carbonation and mild body, somewhat sweet with some smoked meat, becomes very dry. Worth trying.
