A: Pours a deep dark brown color with a bubbly one finger tan head. Leaves some swathes of lace on the surface, but settles fairly quickly.

S: Lots of roasted malt and chicory with a hint of ginger lurking in the background. Faint Mexican chocolate, chipotle and freshly ground coffee. The smells meld together a little strangely, but I have hope for this.

T: A lot of chicory, almost overwhelmingly so. Some day old coffee and a kind of strange roasty sourness going into the finish. Not picking up much from the cocoa nibs at all here. Mouthfeel is a touch overcarbonated and brings out the chicory just a little too much. I really want to try more from these guys, but this one didn't knock it out of the park.
