3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub...Midnight black, but has an exceedingly light palate with 4% ABV. Very sessionable lager that is very light on its feet, but also very complex in its flavor profile with roasted coffee over citrus hops. Yum.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown, almost black pour with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Malt and light hops in the aroma. Taste of cocoa and dark roasted coffee. Excellent.
