Thick dark brown, a dense thin tan foam and viscous lacing. Nose is bristling with earthy roast, rusty vanilla sweetness and chewy raisin. Initial taste is a fairly soily coffee bitterness, fluffy enough sweetness and some odd choc dustings - like the stuff you only get from ’bubbled’ choc like Aero, but I’m more in a Milky Way Magic Stars vibe with this. A bit bloody/bitter/minerally in the middle but otherwise extremely pleasant sweet/coffee swirl here. Well strung carbonation and a thick and sticky mouthfeel. Finishes woody, leathery and molassessy - lingers long dark coffee choc abyss.

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Pours a very viscous jet black color with khaki colored head. Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, and vanilla on the nose, dare I say smells similar to Hunahpu without the chiles; follows onto the palate. Full bodied and thick, yet velvety smooth. Finishes with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla bean.
