On tap at O'Brien's Night of a Million Zillion Speedways.

Pours near black and viscous with a small bubbly head. Aroma is dominated by cocoa nibs, reminding me of a dark chocolate coffee cake. There's a faint earthiness, but this is sort of one note and too heavy on the cocoa. Coffee profile is black as pitch. Flavor is a luscious chocolate landscape, and slightly better than the aroma, but it's still one note and heavy on the chocolate, with some black coffee in there as well. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is low on cask.

Overall, my least favorite of the night, but still tasty in its own right.
