$5.99, Greens, Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Standard, jet black body with the espresso foam colored head – the color of the head reminds me of the tobacco stained wall coverings of really old, snug bars from the 70s. Attractive color. Some lace, but not extensive.
Nose has the usual roasty bitter profile, but follows up with a touch of alcohol. Carbonation seems a little on the high side of the style.
Mellow drinking. The taste does not crash into the tastebuds with the bitterness that the nose might lead one to expect. Solvent like alcohol in the finish makes this a bit edgy. Roasted charcoal flavor does not cut in until the aftertaste.
Not bad, but ultimately just another high alcohol, huge RIS for the sake of it.
