On tap at South Park Tavern. Very deep brown, nearly black. Thin mocha head looks inviting. Eventually a thin collar forms, and some spots of lace.
Roasty notes, espresso and dark chocolate. Caramel, dark fruit and some earthy, almost ashy notes.
Roasted malts and fairly dry up front. Espresso notes, bittersweet dark chocolate and some caramel. Not much dark fruit. Bitter roasty notes linger for a while, just like a nice espresso at the end of a meal.
Great body, with a lower amount of carbonation. Alcohol is hidden very well in this. I really like the dark chocolate/espresso character in this. Well made.
Serving type: on-tap
