Poured on tap at Churchkey DC into a snifter glass.

A very light black body with super dark cocoa brown appearance and some red hued edges. Head is a nice coffee mocha brown and has some good staying power and leaves a nice whispy top.

Nice roasted dark malts on the nose, a little bit of ground coffee, and mellow silky dark chocolate comes on the end. Very nice.

Palate has a very good hop front, but the roast comes through. Mild grapefruit and a little bit of char, with a good hop citrus oil and zesty finish. Lots of milky chocolate as well. The palate feel is the most noticeable thing with a real nice silky texture that balances everything nicely.

Overall a real solid offering from a new DC brewery. Looking forward to more as always.

Pours a dark chocolate muddy brown color. Very soft airy tan head.

Smell is slightly sweet, roasty, earthy notes.

Taste starts sweet, finishes dry. Roasted notes, chocolate, figs, bitter cocoa and earthy hops. Blended pretty well together.

Finish is dry and bitter, medium bodied.

At 9.2%, this is smooth and silent.
