MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Opaque, black-brown with a 2-finger brown head and good lacing.
Aroma of cocoa, cinnamon, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, spice and maybe a little licorice.
Taste of cocoa, sweet roasted malt, coffee, licorice, mild ancho pepper, cinnamon and nuts. Some bitterness paired with sweet malt flavors, which win out in the end. The flavor reminded me of a Mayan hot chocolate--except sweeter.
Full/medium body and medium/low carbonation.

On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a one-finger tan head and minimal lace. Aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and licorice.
Taste is chocolate, cinnamon and roasted malts, with hints of light anise and coffee. Medium body, minimal carbonation, thin mouthfeel and a roasted finish. Cinnamon was too much for me. nealblind (1965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 17, 2015
