Had on-tap at their main location, in Cleveland, On 1/3/09.
ABV and IBU of 85 listed on tap menu, with description of beer.
A- Dark black color, tan head, with lacing that is at first robust but dies down over time.
S- A little raw in the nose, with some brown sugar and chocolate. Hints of woodiness and some spicy hops. Mainly, sweet though.
T- Bitter hops upfront. Strong waves of chocolate and coffee. Chocolate is very dark.
M- Active carbonation lends some bite to this brew. Lies in the mouth heavy but flavorful.
D- Its higher ABV aside, this one goes down smooth and is a good session beer.
Serving type: on-tap
