32 oz growler purchased from the brewery. Enjoyed in the parking lot before a Red Bulls game.

Pours opaque black with a large tan head. Huge coffee and chocolate aroma that just makes you want to keep taking another whiff. Flavor is full of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate with a bitter finish. Medium to full bodied yet very drinkable.

Really enjoyable, possibly the best out of the 4 or 5 beers I've tried from Rockaway. I also sampled it on nitro at the brewery which was great as well, but they do not do nitro growler fills due to the low carbonation.
