Had this from tap at Bell's on 12/13 and it was OK... too strong of an alcohol taste... making it not the most pleasant to drink...

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe on 7/21/12

A) Nearly impenetrable dark brown with some light trying to pass at the base of the glass. Poured an 1/8th inch head that lasted a long time before moving to the edge. Bit o' lace.

S) The aroma secures the description of the beer: dark chocolate and coffee - bitter, roasted and scorched. There is but a ghost note of imperial stout sweetness. So plain, yet so alluring.

T) Tasty dry, roasted bitterness (but it's not overdone). This is actually well balanced for such a thing. Roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate are layered in abundance.

M) Medium/medium-plus feel with appropriate carbonation. The clean finish has mild residuals.

D) To cop a line from a Beck song, "Please enjoy. Hell yes."
