A - Pour produces a nice cocoa colored head, about an inch in height, made up of tight uniform sized bubbles. Body is dark brown and completely opaque.

S - Dark roasty malts right at the forefront. Only a touch of espresso. Black pepper is more pronounced than expected. Light herbal quality.

T - Starts out with the roasty dark malt qualities, with equal parts coffee and cocoa. Huge lactic rush overcomes the palate, ruining whatever else was there for a while. When that lets up, black pepper becomes obvious. Is this green tea in the finish? Strange.

M - Medium bodied, carbonation is ok.

Overall - Wow, this beer seems to be all over the place. Flavors don't really meld together, but rather create a mess of things going on. Lactic note was off-putting.

Price: $5.09 Served In: Tulip
