3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft. Poured dark black with a dark brown head. Smelled like a cold cup of unsweetened black coffee. Tasted like REALLY strong black coffee with a good dry bitterness. Really good but...$10 for a 9oz pour is a bit much.

330ml bottle, pours black with a small off-white head and a lively carbonation. Aroma of chocolate malt with hints of coffee & chilli spice, dark fruits and lime marmalade. Really well balanced, smooth and moreish, dangerously so. Great beer.
