The beer comes in a dark brown/black color with tinges of brown coming through in the light with a frothy mocha brown head.
The aroma has bitter roasted coffee, espresso, a bittersweet chocolate, quite dark and bitter all around. A tinge of creaminess and oatmeal. Almost a dark chocolate truffle.
The flavor follows with a pop of espresso bitterness. Big roasted malt. It’s aggressive and opens the palate immediately. Flavor follows with a bittersweet/milk chocolate. More chocolate comes through as it warms up. Oatmeal lingers around. The finish has a tinge of alcohol and finishes with a hint of chocolate, but falls off pretty quickly.
The mouthfeel is extremely light on this one, almost watery on the finish despite it being round in the front. On tap, this beer stands up better with the carbonation and mouthfeel.
I had this blind against Terrapin’s WnB and that won out based on flavor and mouthfeel, by a reasonable margin.
