A deep dark stout with a thin dark brown head. In aroma, definite strawberry and espresso coffee, with light grassy notes, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet chocolate with strawberry pulp, lingering acidity, and some nice coffee grinds, earthy, oily mouthfeel, wow! On tap at Vices and Versa, Feb. 10 2012.
