On tap at the brewpub. Opaque brown/black body, thin tan head. Roasty, dense nose, almost smoky, with roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Strongly roasted body with coffee beans and cocoa, presenting with a firm bite and bitterness. Stronger than most dry stouts and quite tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very dark brown color with only lacing for a head. A nice roasted aroma and taste. A grassy hop aroma and taste also that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Did nothing for me. There are better examples at this brewpub.
