3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Swamp Head. Black in color with a thin khaki head. Really nice coffee aroma. Kind of nutty, somewhat toasty, and a good bit of roasted malts. There’s plenty of licorice and dark cocoa, too. Flavor is more just roast forward and the carbonation is really lacking. It’s kind of chocolatey, I suppose. Some coffee grounds and a little bit of a green pepper note.

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.
