Tap at Happy Gnome. Dark dense pour with a tan head. Coffee and bourbon. Very good, but I’m drinking this next to Vanilla Rye and my perspective is totally screwed. Just being honest.

2.8
kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2017
What a waste. A black tiny beer with a biscotti head. So thick with alcoholic malt syrup, it really kicks your ass sideways from all 8 directions. I cant find the coffee. Just a lot of dark fruit, alcoholic syrup.
