3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours black color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt, earthy and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark chocolate bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

The best of 3 contracted brews, enjoyed on tap at Papago. Opaque black with lovely off-brown head, lacey. Coffee roast chocolate aroma. Good for something coffee, I am not a coffee drinker. Above average mouthfeel.
