3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a sampler at the Indy location: This beer is a dark brown color with a medium beige head. Solid lacing throughout. The aroma is both nutty and chocolatey. Medium body with malt, chocolate and a little coffee to the taste. The finish is decent and has a nice coffee flavor with a touch of hops. This is pretty good.

Poured a small head with small-medium bubbles. It had a good coffee taste to it which I really enjoyed as it wasn't over strong. In my opinion it had a bit of a cherry aroma to it.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a very small head of small to medium sized light brown bubbles and a dark opaque black brown body. It has a strong malt aroma and a mild coffee flavor. There is a slight bitterness to its start but finishes very smoothly. The coffee flavor lingers well after the taste. It does leave only a fair lacing after a drink from the mug. I really liked this one over all and it was the best brew I had there that evening. Very nice job.
