Black pour with a khaki head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, and dark fruit. Some ash, a slight sweetness, and earthy hops. The flavor is decent enough. Some roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. A bit acidic and fairly dry, but a touch of licorice and fruit sweetness. Light bitterness on the finish.
Pours a nice dark amber color with a nice foamy head. The aroma wasn’t very strong but there were hints of roasted malt and coffee. Nice roasted coffee flavor with a bit of sweetness and chocolate. Almost tastes like a lighter version of a porter. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Brownish amber pour with a huge frothy head. Nice little roasted nose on this. Crisp palate, easy drinking, decent roasty flavor. Best one of today’s lineup here.
