On tap at The Rheinblick in Canandaigua, NY, into a cool branded stein.

Pours a very dark black, at least from what I can tell, with a creamy white head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, smoke, some espresso bitterness, and roasted malt. Smells quite inviting, but could be stronger.

This tastes very similar, a good and equal mix of both chocolate, smoke, coffee, and dark roast. It's pretty full tasting for the low ABV, rich and creamy.

This has a very creamy, delicious mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

I'd been wanting to try this for a while, it really hit the spot.
