6% served from firkin into a 12oz snifter. Black with minimal head, Nose of strong coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Dry hopped, in which I think served as a nice back stop against the maltyness. A nice beer.

Draft on tap at the brewery (Naperville, IL). Pours a rich deep blackish pour, dark and opaque body moves to more brownish edges, some light. A small frothy tannish head atop dies to a small ring, laces ok. Aromas are toffee and chocolate off the bat, both sweet and bitter. Some biscuits, toffee, and gentle orange and floral hops. Really nice and richer nose offers a good malt vibrancy with fun supporting hops. Initial is medium bodied, a good orange and cocoa vibe off the bat. A bit thinner than the hoppy stout, it offers cocoa and toast, some toffee. A firm orange and floral hop feel starts to hit. Grass, earth, cocoa and bakers chocolate. A bit creamy and silky into the middle, the malt bill is quite pleasant, dry and bitter mix with an enjoyable toffee and chocolate mix. Backend is lingering cocoa, toffee, orange and earthy hops. It’s not complex but the experience works very well, quite drinkable, flavors integrate nicely. Nice beer.
