Smells like burnt coffee and sugar, tastes like nail polish. Really harsh and sharp in the mouth, chemically and fake. Horrifically boozy.

On tap. A dark brown body with a short-lived, off-white foamy head and a bit of lacing. The aroma has lots of roasted malt and some chocolate. The flavor has more chocolate with the toasted malt along with some coffee and a malty aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 draft at mountain sun. sweet pancake syrup and caramel nose. heavily oily resinous coffee cake with dirty, earthy phenols. brash alcohol strikes the nose. strong ethanol and syrupy caramel dark malt flavor. chewy and rough with prickly acid. messy

Tap @ Vine Street. Clear rustic burnt orange, nice small cap head. Smell is assertively sweet and earthy, with some chocolate tones and some roasted toffee. Taste was much the same, lots of toffee and some earthy sweet malty tones, very light herbal bitterness. Very lovely and complex, with light boozy and fruity esters.
