B+

TapRoom Pacific Beach

Served black black black, no highlights no head no lace.

Aroma is all about roastiness, thick char without smoke. Bitter coffee. Unmistakable rye.

Taste is preciously what the scent said. Strong flavor, roast again. Complexity lies in the sensation of an abrupt strong flavor fading away, doesn't evolve as much as simply fade nicely. Mouthfeel is rich slick and nicely lifeless.
