Draft @ Ward Eight, Lowell MA. A slighter darker than coca cola with thick, full tan head, that coated the side of the mug on the way down. Nice roasted malts, chocolate aroma, with molasses, and a hint of smoke. The flavor has charred malts at the core, with lots of roasted grain, coffee notes and nice amount of chocolate through the sip. The alcohol isnít apparent at all until just after the swallow. Nice warming on the way down. Medium-bodied but leaning on full. This beer definitely didnít disappoint. Layers of roasted malts. Full of flavor and another great beer from Jacks Abby.

Big thanks to Alex for the Growler! Pours a clear dark brown with a with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of dark grain and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Flavor has more of a combination of roasted malts and dark chocolate that gives a slightly bitter finish.
