Tasting notes: pours jet black, nice frothy foamy head, micro CO2. Massive roasted coffee nose. Right away there is a burst of roasted coffee, bitter milk chocolate, demerara sugar, figs, prunes, cocoa nibs, burnt malts, all the while with a very whipped creamy mouthfeel, and subdued alcohol even though you can detect its presence. Finish is ultra-long and a sharp bitter lingering coffee bitter. High complexity, high depth, excellent transitions, excellent carry, great drinkability. It is very similar to their beer geek brunch.
