On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear brown body with minimal to no head. The nose is chocolaty and roasty with some light ale yeast fruitiness. The flavor has lots of coffee with some roast and some light fruitiness. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice, long lingering coffee finish.
