(On cask)

The beer comes in a black color.

The beer offers roasted coffee, chocolate, with an English yeast of some cooked apples. There is a toasted malt quality in the middle with a bit of sweetness.

Decent amount of flavor, slightly light on the mouthfeel.

A - Pitch black with a nice, half-inch beige head that dissipates quickly.

S - Roasted malt with hints of dark chocolate and coffee mixed in.

T - Roasted malts start and lead into deep, dark chocolate with perhaps a hint of coffee. Perfect amount of bitterness.

F - Medium body, good carbonation with a nice graininess that's reminiscent of Taza chocolate.

0 - This is a great beer. The grainy, bitter dark chocolate is what makes it all come together for me. Very enjoyable.
