12oz bottle poured into a straight sided pint glass. Bottled 6/20/12.
A: Gave me nearly a finger of mocha brown head. Very deep brown body...might actually be black, but I’ve always thought of it as brown. Tough call.
S: Lots of coffee, some light chocolate, and wonderful smoky aromas.
T: A balance of earthy hops, caramel and chocolate notes. The roastiness of the malt is perfect for this style.
M: Pretty much spot on for the style. Carb adds some welcome creaminess that enhances the entire experience.
O: To me, the signature of this brew is its smokiness. It invokes the umami sensation that I get from the Maillard reaction in barbecue or pan-seared foods. So nice.
