On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Big roast on the nose, sweet cocoa and chocolate. Medium bodied, big roast, a touch of sweetness. Chocolate, cocoa, long warm alcohol shows up but isn’t bracing or harsh. Long roast into the finish, chocolate, cocoa, lingering bitterness and roast with some more alcohol. Very nice.
