2017 Vintage. On draft tasting.

Pitch black, thin tan lace, tan head of foam.

Tons of bitter roasty coffee. Subtle dark chocolate backbone

So much coffee! Finishes with chocolate.

So smooth, good even carb. Great finish.

Very, very rich coffee and chocolate. Feel is dry and creamy but with minimal viscosity.

Overall I think I liked the non coffee BA darkstar more.
