3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Winterfest 2012, pour is dark brownish black with off white head, aroma is big espresso bean, coffee grounds, touch of chocolate, some roasted malt as well as some biscuit and caramel notes. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, toffee, big bitter espresso, going into slight off putting wet coffee, finishing fairly bitter and dry. Pretty nice.

Minnesota Winterfest 2012. Black color with a large head. Strong espresso and roasty aroma. Holy acrid coffee. Very roasty, like chewing on a good handful of espresso beans.
