On tap at Pour in Rochester, NY.

Pours a very dark black, with a little bit of visible carbonation, and a 1.5 inch dark mocha-colored head, and a lot of lacing.

Smells like chocolare, and a bit of roasted malt, could be a bit stronger, there's something missing.

This tastes alright, but I feel like something's missing. It's just too watery. There's a good amount of chocolate, a little bit of espresso bitterness, but not enough roasted malt. It's a bit too sweet, it needs more bitterness.

It's also a bit too carbonated, keeping the mouthfeel a bit too prickly. It has a medium thick body.

This misses the mark, it needs a few tweaks to reach the next level.
