Tap at BCTC. Pour is near black with a decent head. The aroma is intensely roasty, loaded with coffee and peanut. Tons of carbonation kind of masks the flavor, but there are some remnants of coffee rinds, and oat. The "soda" tag is pretty accurate here. Disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ BCTC. Pours a murky, chocolate-brown color; light tan head with patchy lacing. Loads of roasted coffee (beautiful note here), bitter chocolate, and cocoa. Highly carbonated. Loads of green, roasted coffee, vegetal / stalky notes, and watery chocolate malts; disappointing concentration in the mouth following the fine coffee character in the nose. Medium mouthfeel: toasty grains, wet malts, chocolate, and light cocoa; some lingering, light stalky vegetal notes.
