On tap at the brewpub. Pretty good one here. Roasty, rich and chocolately. Black as heck with a light browinsh head that hung around. Thumbs up.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Appearance: Onyx black body with a full, lush, creamy beige head. Smell: Black malts and roasted barley with notes of unsweetened chocolate and aniseed. Taste: Sweet flavors of dark chocolate and dark caramel with a touch of anise and roastiness. Light, earthy bitterness. A bit of earth, a bit of roast, and more dark chocolate for the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Mild carbonation. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. Drinkability: It’s delish! Like melted chocolate ice cream.
