tmoreau (3915) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12 oz. serving, dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a black/brown color, with some ruby highlighting, tan head froth, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was maybe a touch of cocoa, not much roastiness, but more hints of cherry, vinous notes, and a bit of tartness. The flavor then presented a lingering, peppery quality that slowly escalated in intensity as the tasting continued, and roastiness that was substantial, but more coffee-like than cocoa. Medium+ bodied, the alcohol was fairly hidden, and the carbonation successfully enhanced the peppery, and only moderately restrained bitterness into the additionally dry finish.
