On tap at Meadhall - Cambridge, MA. Clean roast aroma. Light coffee-like body, edging seltzer-Like and minerally, with a bit of mush to the middle. Good dark flavors, but not as snappy as it could be.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toasty coffee malt and singed hops aroma. Odd lactic undertone, wait till it warms if that’s not really apparent. Dark cola brown. The texture is kind of cola like too - nice and crisp and sometimes gritty, yet mellow as a whole. Bittersweet coffee taste. This one is about what the brewer describes, and can be abbreviated to something like dunkel with schwartz tendencies.

Pours out looking like a typical stout. Nice frothy tan head. Light roasty aromas. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and somewhat fizzy. Lots of roasty malts though. This one is what it says it is. Easy drinking and quaffable. Perfect with a meal.
