2013

A- Near black, light moca colored head about 1 finger high. Light lacing, visable bubbles up the sides.

S- Heavy coffee up front, some malts, bread, muted chocolates.

T- Coffee, malts, some chocolate, strong coffee finish with a bitter acidy finish

M- Medium, slick, decent.

O- like the smell, taste was somewhat of a let down, didn't care for the bitter acid like finish. Coming from one of my favorite brewerys this was a disappointment. Maybe it sat to long in my beer celler, will get a fresher one and re-review at some point.
