Pours heavy and thick with not much head to speak of, but a thin golden brown.

Smells like a coffee house, some roasted malt, earthy, and sweet.

Tastes like a dark chocolate infused dark roast coffee blend, very sweet, but very tasty.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth, definitely a dessert brew.

Overall, I'd be happy to pick this up again! Would love to try this on draft once they open their taproom here in Chicago.
