It pours somewhat clear, a dark russet wtih some cheesy off-white head. The aroma is very light, with only a bit of roast malt and some caramel. The flavor is dry and roasty, with a strong rich roast coffee presence that lasts. Hint of an earthy hop flavor balance, and a coffee astringency lingers a bit.

Draft at Millstream Beer & Chocolate tasting event. Poured a dark brown color with a tan head. Smelled of subdued coffee and a bit of hay. The was a distinct coffee flavor accented by hints of chocolate and hay. Medium bodied and dryish. Good beer.
