Had the cask conditioned version. Pours a rich, opaque sable just a couple red tomcat whiskers above black with a thick, fine-bubbled, persistent tan head. Aroma has a strong, hoppy/evergreen overtone and malty, smoky, roast coffee notes. Flavor has coffee, malty, chocolate and evergreen notes, rather like drinking a serious IPA mixed with a good coffee stout. There is a hint of sweetness that nicely balances the hop bitterness. Smooth texture has above-average body and just a little fizziness, but hoppy and smoky finish boosts this. A winner! No wonder Wrecking Bar was recently voted Atlanta’s best brewpub. And that ain’t just beginner’s luck, either!
