3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Wrecking Bar. Black pour with a small tan head. Big time coffee aroma here. Quite impressive, though it does kind of drown out a lot of the other characteristics. Somewhat heavy on the cocoa/chocolate notes still. A nice bit of roast, some mild sweetness of dark fruits and toffee. Just a touch spicy as well. Pretty nice.

Really enjoyed this one. Smells like coffee and smoked meat, with some dark cocoa. Taste is very rich, lots of espresso and dark chocolate and smokey flavors. Really nice stuff.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep black with some cola highlights on the edges under a medium sized dense tan head. Sweet roast and coffee with chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Medium bodied, cocoa and chocolate with a big coffee kick. Lingering coffee on the finish, earthy and bitter.

Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Pours black with a medium khaki head that dissipates gradually. Patchy lacing. Aroma of coffee, malt and chocolate. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and vanilla. The finish is roasty with a vanilla coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
