3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… Pours midnight black with a small, wispy, beige head. The nose is acrid and dark with notes of espresso and dark chocolate really standing out… more-so the espresso. Medium-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Acrid, bitter flavors of espresso and unsweetened cocoa accompanied by light acidity. Finished burnt and moderately bitter. Needs more malt and more body to be a real hit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Cigar City. Pours black with a medium frothy beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Light to medium body with a roasty character and notes of chocolate malt and mild hops. The finish is short with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Miccosukee Root Cellar in Tallahassee FL. Pours deeper near black. Medium, rockier coffee head. Webby lacing. Nose is rich coffee and dark chocolate. No off character. Taste is roasty, quite rich, super heavy espresso and dark chocolate. Very good. Rich but drinkable. Lighter palate than its peers with no wateriness. Quite a feat. Much better than first batches I tried a few years ago before they had distribution.
