Sample at the brewpub. Pours nearly black with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, black coffee and a touch of licorice. The finish is roasty with a lingering chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
