Had this when I was done in Jacksonville, FL. I was totally impressed. Right from the dark jet black color with a dirty cream head, the aroma was captivating. A little coffee, a little chocolate and a hint of orange. The taste was big and bold yet creamy smooth. The finish was as if you just had some pudding that you loved.
A treat for me. Now to find it in the Northeast

Smooth, creamy, and just the right amount of hops to make it interesting and unique.
