Magic Hat Heart of Darkness

Taking a break from the milonga (Argentine Tango dance event), my friend Apurv and I went over to CVP to have a quick drink before heading back.

I wrote: "Magic Hat Heart of Darkness Stout. I smell coffee and chocolate notes. The beer tastes similar to how it smells. It's a solid stout. This was last Thursday."* 20140128 2:12PM ET

*While I wrote "Thursday," I surely meant "Friday," which was the day of the Tango Esta Noche Milonga (Thursdays are when the regular classes are held).
