Oh my oh my, this is a fine beer.
Served in a tulip glass, a bubbly mocha head sits atop this thick black ale. The head dissipates quickly, though, and can only be brought back (modestly) with some excessive swirling.
Smell is pretty remarkable: heavy coffee notes (almost like getting a slight whiff of french press) along with cocoa. Some alcohol present in the nose, too.
Taste is of bold roasted and chocolate malts. This is balanced well, not too sweet, not too bitter. A bit of alcohol resonates as it washes down.
This is a thick-bodied beer but still manages to go down without any sludge or oily residue. Relatively little carbonation suits this beer quite fine. Well done.
This is a beer worth seeking. And as is so often true, I believe it is even more delicious in the company of good friends. Great beer.
Serving type: on-tap
