Tap @ the brewery. Easily the best beer I had this particular evening. Rich chocolate, coffee and grain with a enough bitter in the finish to keep it from being too sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the The Sugarbowl. Just watched an excellent beer get poured. Black - thick and oily. The medium brown cap is huge and lasts forever, leaves tons of lacing all the way to the bottom and appears to be almost plastic it is so thick. The aroma is pretty solid with a big malty quality. Acceptable mild levels of coffee and a chocolate nose that is very long and rich as well. The long, smooth malts go on and on never letting me down but never offering up much more... which is fine by me. The taste is similar. The light coffee makes an early stand and then gently fades away as the chocolate evolves. The coffee never leaves but just blends into the back ground with the rich, warm chocolate with its mild bitterness. The large roundness of the choc flavour continues to impress throughout. Basic fruitiness peers in and out and a woody burntness gathers everything together. Faint hop bitterness. IT has a smooth and oily feel - soft and soothing. Very nice.
