Tap @ Witch’s Hat: Dark, black; a small, light-tan ring outlines the very top of the beer where it meets the glass. Aroma has an apparent dryness to it (much like a dry stout)... Makes sense for only being 4.5% ABV. Roasted grain & barley, toasted cocoa beans, & an elegant undercurrent of a milk chocolate bar infused with orange zest. Taste is also very much like a dry stout... More roasted barley with a chocolate flavor akin to unsweetened powder. Hint of orange zest in the back; hidden at first, but subtly building in stature over time. Finish is dry, roasted grain, dry cocoa powder, & a hint of orange zest. Unique, tasty.

From notes. On tap at Witch’s Hat on March 17. The pour is black with a thin ring of off-white head and a decent amount of lace. The aroma is somewhat bland. There is a decent presence of some fruit, but the little bitterness seems to drown it out. The flavor is a little on the strange side. There is a good bitterness, but some citrusy and orange notes come through and finish strong with a hint of chocolate, maybe. The mouth feel is a bit light and thin. The carbonation is light, but present, and the aftertaste is somewhat like a bitter orange juice.
