The aroma is chocolate, roasted coffee. The appearance is deep black, light ta head. The flavor is dark chocolate, oasted coffee, a little more bittersweet than the aroma. The finish is roast, pine hops. Medium/thick in body. Good overall.

Draft @ Alewife Queens. Pours jet black with a thin khaki head. The aroma has nice subtle notes of bittersweet chocolate, anise, coffee, and a slight hint of smoke. The alcohol is barely detectable. The coffee beans and smokiness seem to be the focus of the taste. Also some notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Has a full mouthfeel and the slightest hint of bitterness and alcohol in the finish. Good solid stuff!

On draft at the brewery. Pours a midnight black, pure darknees and solid molasses. head is hight to start, then fizzles to engulf the glass moderately throughout the brew. Taste is light chocolate, slight fig and plum, roasted cocoa and deep burnt granola. Aby is well hidden and was surprised to find out it was at 9.6% when sampled. A fine brew here and one to share with others to not only impress but to enjoy. Ill be back for the rest. A 5 mintue drive it all it takes....
