Had on tap at the brewery. This is one of the best beers we had at this brewery. It was creamy with notes of coffee, roasted malt, slight lactose. It was like an iced mocha. Nice and drinkable.

Slight malty roasted aroma at the start but not overpowering. Mostly cloudy appearance ( not uncommon for this dark of style.) Good malt and roast flavors but a bit roast bitterness at the finish. Slightly watery mouthfeel but carbonation level is perfect for the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pint at Ruby Tuesdays in Pocatello. Pitch with a nice creamy head. Nose is cocoa, caramel, graham cracker, and coffee with sour cream. Flavor is a great blend of the same with some light char and a hint of salt. Medium-heavy body really is smooth as satin, slightly chewy and chalky, and very drinkable.
