Dark with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is light roasted malts, chocolate, earth. Medium body. Cocoa, roasted malts, chocolate, and light earthy hops. Easy going beer. If the abv were a couple points lower this would be an all night kinda beer.

This was stated to be some sort of hybrid of Storm King and Donnybrook. Pour is black with brown edges and a smaller fluffy head. Lots of coffee dust, unsweetened cocoa powder, with a light green hops finish. Dry, pleasant, and well done, but not something I’d order again as it’s not really my thing.
