UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Draft at Turkey Creek location. Opaque with a creamy lasting disc of foam. Nose is mocha, char and light caramel. Smooth taste is the same with a bit more char and wood on the finish. Medium-heavy body is fairly smoothly carbonated, and well-balanced, with well-hidden abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt and burnt coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, what I think is a touch too much black patent malt, and a pretty nice warmth. A tad foamy on the intitial drink, medium bodied. A blessing in a 1/2 pint pour. A bit too much malt bitter to be over the top but glad they tried it..
