On draft. Dark brown almost black. Decent head. Coffee is all I taste. Good, just wish it had a little more body. BREWMUSKCLES (2759) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2010
$4 half pint at the brewery. Saturday at the stringfest on a beautiful warm October day. Beer was a little less than spicy and thin in body. Strong burnt Mexican flavor that is a bit harsh. no chocolate that i could discern. not much beer character can be discerned except for a foamy and nice consistant wave of carbonation.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color, nearly opaque. Medium brown head with good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma is bitter coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and a hoppy finish. Taste is big fresh and bitter coffee notes, strong hoppy finish and faint hops. The coffee is very, very dominant. Thin bodied and very slightly watery.
