Pitcher on tap from Zeitgeist in the Mission, SF. Lovely dark stout, served cold and unremarkable but as it settles and warms a little a great bundel of flavours arise, coffee dominating for me. lovely interesting. Local beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Pours a solid black with a brown head. It has a nice aroma of dark malt, chocolate, coffee, and some smoke. The flavor is malt and dark chocolate up front, followed by a bittersweet middle and aftertaste over a medium body that is surprising considering the rich flavor. Easily one of my favorite lagers.
