Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, raw cocoa powder, and some light toast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied, and a little rough around the edges. Finishes with more raw cocoa powder and roast.

A-black in color with two fingers worth of tan colored head

S-roasted malt aroma with chocolate and dark coffee

T-taste is similar to the smell with a roasted malt backbone, chocolate, roasted coffee, and earthy hops

M-medium body, a bit on the thin side for the style, light carbonation

Overall a bit too light in the body for me, overall there are better offerings out there
