Bottle poured into a mug, creamy head of dark tan foam, long lasting retention. Color is black, can't see through it in the glass.

Dark roasty and milk chocolatey aroma.

Roasty and bitter upfront, long lasting bitter aftertaste. 52 IBU, and it's pretty present. Light chocolate and coffee flavors, mellow but well melded with an underlying earthy hoppyness. Medium bodied with a light tang to it. Overall pretty drinkable, would seek out on tap again.

Thanks Eric for this one!
