Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 01/30/09.
Pours nearly pitch black with a finger of tan head. The head quickly dropped to a thin layer, not much retention. Aroma is strong with bitter dark chocolate and roasted coffee.
Taste is mostly dark chocolate and bitter roasted coffee. Some sweet milk chocolate as well. The chicory noticeable in the taste and adds an interesting flavor. The feel is slightly acidic (from the coffee) with a medium body. Not too heavy with a high amount of carbonation. Could stand to be a little smoother. Drinkability is pretty good. It's not too heavy, I could drink a few of these.
This is one of my favorite Dogfish beers. Not the most complex from them, but it is tasty. If you like stouts or coffee, give it a shot.
