Poured into a pint. Beautiful appearance and outstanding mouthfeel. Unfortunately, I found the taste, especially at first, to be very metallic. After resting in my glass for a few minutes, that metal taste seemed to dissipate somewhat and start to show some more roasted flavors that were initially overpowered. Kind of a strange experience, so I'd like to at least give it another try down the road.

A: A dark brown body with a mocha brown/white one finger head.

S: A very muted aroma. It is difficult to smell anything at all. There is a stale lager aroma with subtle chocolates.

T: There is a bitter harshness to the flavor with some chocolate and coffee flavors present as well.

M: The body is very light but there is fantastic carbonation.

O: This is good but not great. Worth trying if you can find it.

Pours dark black, with a reddish tint on the edges. Finger and a half of head with very good lacing. Roasted malt comes in strong at first then the piney hops take over, tranistions well and finishes slightly sweet. Very light mouthfeel is unexpected and makes this a fun beer. The well balanced flavors add to the fun too.

A - Black, deep brown with a big rocky tan head that refuses to fade leaving big, bubbly foam behind.

S - Roasted malt, dark chocolate, piney and herbal hops. Much lighter aroma than I was expecting.

T - Hop bitterness with piney and fresh green hop flavors. Light char and astringent roast malt notes. Licorice and baking chocolate lead to a lingering, dry herbal finish

M - Medium body, creamy and well carbonated. Dry.

D - The herbal green hops clash a bit with the roasty, char malt.
