Bottle share thanks to droofus. Coffe and chocolate in the nose. Flavor is a mix of dark cocoa and chocolate. Not much roast in the flavor. Overall pretty decent but kinda flat and one dimensional.

Sampled at Mass Brewers Fest @ Julio’s. Pours dark brown with some rusty edges. Bubbly tan head. Hint of smoke on the aroma with charred malt and coffee grounds. Molasses and dark chocolate give a bitter, yet sweet flavor with a bit of Belgian yeast. Palate is full & creamy, yet kind of dry. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a thin tan head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is molasses, black licorice, coffee and roasted malt. Great blend.
Taste is licorice sweet at first, warm alcohol and roasted malt middle, finishes with a mild lemon bitterness. Nice profile.
The texture is thicker with a good fizz and overall moderate carbonation.
