  • Poured clear with enough mocha colored, thick foam to give my glass an afro. Really nice retention and spider-web lacing. Nice looking beer.

    Big sweet caramel malt on the nose. Not much else; maybe some dry fruits.

    Very malty on the palate. With some chocolate that comes out in the middle and finding it's way into some burnt malt and mild coffee flavor. Maybe some hops at the very end. Tasty.

    Light carbonation and medium body. A really tasty beer that goes down well and is complex. Interesting to say the least. I could have several more to make sure I really like it. Enjoy!
