On tap at the brewpub. Looks pretty good, almost black body with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma is typically organic, i.e. weird. I get some rotten fruit notes peeking out from behind alcohol, cocoa, and roast. Flavor is alright with standard dark chocolate and roasted coffee dynamic. Lots of alcohol thins out the body with astringency. High carbonation, not very drinkable.
