Tap at Franklin’s. Think black pour with a light tan head. Light roast aroma with chocolate notes. Watery, with little flavor. Some dry, bitter roastiness. Nothing offensive. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2010
25 oz bottle. Pours a clear black body with a fizzy brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is pretty decent, roasty, some dark caramel, a touch of coffee. The flavor is very weak and watery though, slightly burnt and acrid with a bland grainy finish. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery with light fizzy carbonation. Not one to seek out.
