Draught at Ginger Man, NYC
Black color. Dusty roasted malt aroma and dark chocolate. Dry mouthfeel; medium-weak body, milky roasted malt flavor. Too much roasted malt, it even becomes a bit astringent because of it. Nothing special.

Medium brown. No real head. The nose is fairly chocolatey, a bit fudgey. Pretty straightforward chocolatey character. The sweetness comes out as it warms.
