Sample at the brewpub. Pours flat black with a medium creamy tan head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character of coffee and malt, plus a touch of dark chocolate. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent all around.
