bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle from Beer Geek. Pours dark brown/black with a decent light tan head. Aromas of dark roast malt with coffee and chocolate. Rather full bodied with frothy carbonation. Flavor is coffee, dark roast/burnt malt and maybe a little chcoolate. The finish is slightly sweet. But the dark elements balance that. Not sure why this is perceived as thin by so many. Maybe cause it thins as the carbonation leaves?
