Tap. Dark black pour, a little lasting head and frothy lacing with an aroma of roasty dark malt & spicy hops. Flavor is also nice roasty malt, very hoppy & oaky and a liitle dry on the finish. I dig it, hope this becomes a regular offering.

On tap at Muddy Pig, nice black pour with a tan head. First aroma is plastic, nasty, let it sit for a while. As it warms the oak starts to shine through, bit of chocolate and nice hop presence. Taste is creamy chocolate piney bitterness, this is great!
