Pours a dark brown and nearly black color. Thick head brown and white head retains well as a creamy and frothy lace that reminds me of a cappuccino. Aroma has sweet malts, sugars and coffee tones. Taste has malty sweetness, elements of fruit and coffee. Has a slightly dry and bitter finish that balances it nicely. Had it with a chocolate cake; a perfect pairing! Great feel! Medium bodied but very drinkable, almost refreshing like a lighter beer.
A good find from Anchor; a brewery that has yet to diss appoint me.
