On tap at Base Camp Pizza. Pours dark, thin head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt, cocoa, and nutty. Not bad, the only complaint I have is the palate is a bit thin.

Nutty, dark malt and chocolate aroma. Brown/black color with a frothy off tan head. Not much at the start with light tingle but has a a creamy nut and vanilla, very balanced finish. I wish there was more to the start but it proves it self at the end.
