Draught. Deep dark brown with a small yellow/mocha head. The aroma has chocolate creaminess, coffee roast but generally more of the former. Soft creamy body that leans towards the thin side. Dry fruitiness and chocolate finish. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at LCB in Oct ’05. 5oz sample. Looks black, at the bar, with a frothy, khaki head. The head sticks around and around like a nitro pour, but I am not sure it was. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted malt aroma. The external cig smoke is a bit overwhelming. The taste is sweet, initially with roasty, chocolate, and coffee flavors, in fact, a lot of coffee. There is some bitterness that gives it espresso notes. The finish is moderately bitter. Full body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at the brewpub. pours a completely black body with a thick creamy tan head, reminiscent of a nitro beer. aroma is strong with coffee, but also held a bit of sweetness that i had a hard time specifying. the taste was excellent, a very solid blend of roasted coffee, malts and some sweet chocolates at the end. it had a great sweet coffee aftertaste, with almost no bitterness at all. my only complaint is that the body was a little light and watery. i am seeing that as a pattern in my ratings for this brewpub, maybe that is just their style, but i like a little more body, especially in a beer like this. still in all, an excellent beer.
