Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 2. Opaque black beer with a big pale tan head. Palate is soft and slightly airy and semi dry. Rich and dry dark malt with a touch of roast. Little dark malt cream. Mild lactose. Just a whisper of blackberry. Dry finish with some alcohol spice. Good but I was expecting so much more.

Travlr (11810) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Extremely black color, dark brown head. Aroma of fruity coffee, like a brightly roasted Ethiopian coffee bean. Taste is smooth, with a nice combination of fruitiness and roastiness. Not as complex as others in the series, but still tasty.
