Served on tap at the brewery in LB.

Pours pitch black, some foam. Rings around. Deep malty nose. Taste is a rich chocolately malt with a whiskey back. Light carbonation. Aftertaste is a little boozy. Good flavor, a little hard in the finish. A tough drink. Flavorful but real boozy tasting.

Some are literally addicted to this beer. Big beer. Thick mouth feel. Smoky, coffee, toasty, chocolate, alcohol aroma.
