Poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was off stale coffee, and vinegar. Flavor similar, waterly, slick mouthfeel, light acid, seems to be headed towards imfection.

Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Patchy lacing. Coffee, chocolate and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, coffee and mild chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bailey’s, pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of potent coffee, not much else discernible. Flavour brings out light coffee notes - really not much else. Thin body without much complexity. Solid, but uninspired.
