Bought this in Orlando Florida at Knightly Spirits.

Served in Schlafly's tulip at about 2:30 AM.

A: Poured a ridiculously black color, without much of a head to speak of.

S: Bitter cacao. If that's you're thing, this might be your beer. Pretty rich.

T: The rye stains the teeth like a rat bastard from hell and I actually dig that quality here. Chocolate is also most certainly evident.

M: Bitter, but not too. No lacing left on the glass.

O: Cowabunga man! I liked this, but didn't love it.

Black and opaque with a very, very thick brown head, rich and foamy, plenty of sticky lacing. Licorice and anise in the aroma; mint and dark roasted malts. Spicy, hoppy flavors; peppery; slight alcohol edge. Light bodied; dry finish.

A rather interesting collaboration. The body comes across surprisingly light yet there is plenty of taste and aroma components to makes this one stand out in its own way.

Pours jet black with a tan head. In the aroma, rye stands out with some cocoa notes. In the taste, rye and chocolate malt dryness. A smooth and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry green apple ryeness and a roasty chocolate like aftertaste. Big rye, not too rich, nice presence of chocolate malts.
