Poured a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is a rich roasted malt, coffee and molasses. Wonderful.
The taste is rich as well. Roasted malt, rye spice, coffee just a little bit burnt.
The texture is crisp with low to moderate carbonation.

Black in color with a tan head. A bit of rye on the nose, nice roast, pine, and some citrus hops. Grapefruit, orange peel, coffee, and maybe some chocolate. There’s a moderate citrus quality, some pine, floral hops, and lots of roast. Coffee, chocolate, and mild caramel sweetness. Decent bitterness on the finish.

Tap @ Carlsbad brewpub. Black pour with a quickly thinning tan head. Aroma is rye and roast with chocolate perhaps light coffee and minimal hop bitterness. Taste is heavy on the roast with chocolate and rye with background bitterness. Nice roasty beer but more of a hops presence would be nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with 2 finger frothy light brown head. Nose- chocolate and roasted malts, coffee, rye and resin. Medium to heavier bodied with flavors of earth and roast, chocolate malts, biscuits, some herbal and resin hops subtly making an appearance. Spicy nuanced finish. Pretty good though not elite.
