This was a draft pour at the Portland brewpub during the RBSG. In the glass it appeared to be a very dark red bordering on black with a beige head. Good lacing rings. Nose of dark roasted malts showing both chocolate and coffee. Medium plus in body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is nicely balanced between the chocolaty/coffee and floral hops. Dry bitter finish. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
On tap @ Widmer. Black pour with a khaki head. Pretty roasty and heavy on the coffee. A little bit of dark fruit, cocoa powder. nd perhaps some raisin acidity. Flavor is a touch bitter. Kind of watery on the tongue. Big time roast, hints of ash, and coffee grounds. Just okay. DuffMan (10934) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015

Almost black with a small tan head, some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, caramel and chocolate
Draft - Lots of dark rich roast. Jet black with a decent light brown head. Dark roast, some toasty burn notes and a nice finish. Nothing exciting but well done.
