---from can to pint glass---

Appearance
Totally black – no light is allowed through, huge fluffy head – 2 fingers worth, lots of floating sediment, great head retention with great lacing… this beer is just about perfect. No, wait, it’s perfect.

Smell
Dark roasted malts and pine. Little chocolate aroma comes through

Taste
Dark chocolate and fresh coffee, piney aftertaste

Mouth-feel
Borders on heavy body, great lingering bitter chocolate, just sweet enough.

Overall
Whoa! I underestimated this beer! The hops and malt dance in perfect harmony here. Try this beer, please.

Many pint glasses consumed at the Indeed tap room in NE Minneapolis.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown/black slightly cloudy with a nice one finger tan foam head that fades quickly and leaves nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Hops, dark roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate on the nose.

Taste: Some good hops bitterness up front, with a great dark roasted malt smoothness after. Some hints of coffee, black licorice and dark chocolates in the mix. A really satisfying dark ale flavor that's not overpowering in any aspect.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation with a crisp and smooth finish.

Overall: I have tried many of the Indeed beers on tap or in cans, and this remains one of my favorites. I love that perfect mix of hops and dark roasted malts and could drink this one all day long...and I have! Another winner from Indeed.

Serving type: on-tap
