Pours an almost pitch black with a nice two finger head.
Smell is heavy bitter coffee. Dark malts and vanilla take the back seat.
Taste mirrors the nose. Bitter coffee up front with a wave of vanilla and dark malts after.
Nice mouthfeel and more carbonation than expected.
Excellent beer. Would definitely drink again.
Serving type: on-tap

A: This poured a nearly opaque black garnet with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like tons of coffee grounds, with a little artificial vanilla and bitter dark chocolate.
T: It tasted like bitter coffee grounds, with some artificial vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate. The aftertaste was somewhat clean and bittersweet.
M: It was a little thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This had a good scent and taste and body, but it wasn't as complex or delicious as I expected. The finish was a little rough, so it wasn't super easy to drink. It might improve with age, but was not that impressive fresh.
Serving type: bottle
