Heftyt coffee aroma. The flavor is similar, with a hint of coffee and a thick, malt body. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the Blue Heron brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear cola brown colored brew with a fast dissolving beige head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of chocolate and Munich malt, some dry leafy medicinal hops and a touch of tobacco. Taste is medium bodied, nice balanced carbonation with flavors of toasted and burnt chocolate malt, medicinal spice and a hint of banana pepper without the hot spice. Finish is quite dry, mild bitterness that lingers a little.
