ARH (558) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler. Clean and floral notes come through on the nose initially, which includes a roasted quality, some earthiness, a dark fruit aroma, and some wet cardboard too. It pours a dark, murky opaque mud brown color with a tan, uneven, soapy head. A fuzzy, wispy island and moderate ring is left behind and the glass is fairly clean as the lace is runny. It’s a medium sweet beer with just a touch of bitterness. The light-medium body has a thin yet sticky texture with a buzzy carbonation. Burnt coffee, cacao, and raisin flavors come through on the palate and it finishes with mostly a dry cacao character. There’s some cacao with ash in the aftertaste, as well as a funky penicillin touch buried in there.

From notes. Finally getting around to adding beers from the Ypsi Summer Beerfest! Enjoyed on July 25. The pour is dark brown with a thin, lighter tan head and a decent lace. The aroma is heavy on chocolate and caramel malts. There is also a light coffee note on the back end. It’s pretty plain, but pretty decent. The flavor is a little more hoppy than I was expecting, but it’s well received. The malts are sweet, and there is a little chocolate. Not too bad. The mouth feel is a little light and there is a sweetness to it. The aftertaste isn’t too bad, but it quite dry.
