12oz bottle into a pint glass. no freshness dating.

first off, this one was a bit lively when i poured it, and i lost half of it to overflow.

black and brown body. small tan head. some lacing. a lot of sediment laying on the bottom of the glass.

aroma seemed a bit off. quite heavily roasted malt, no chocolate notes.

again, mostly heavily roasted malt on the taste, no chocolate.

mouth a bit above medium, slightly burnt and bitter on the finish.

overall, possibly a off bottle, but i didnt much care for this. will re-review if i have again and its greatly different.

4/21...pours dark black, thin head of brown foam. Strong coffee roaster nose. Thin mouthfeel, dark chocolate burst of flavor, fast finish. Slight bitter. light bodied, enough flavoring to stay interesting. Overall, so so.

On tap at Appalachian in Lititz, PA. Pours a deep brown, almost but not quite black. Thin head that goes away quickly. A lot of chocolate, plus some coffee. Sweet, thick, smooth, creamy without being syrupy. A little bitterness offsets the sweetness nicely.
