Had this on tap at Horse Brass. It arrived at the same time as my wife's Guinness and our friend's Black Butte. The similarity in the beers visibly was uncanny. It was a solid opaque black graced with a regal quaff of foam.

The aroma was tart and slightly smokey. Mild, but partly due to the competition with the fancy pipe smoke from the guy sitting next to us.

The taste was astounding. Its rare that you stumble across something that can easily replace a standard with such ease. Nothing in this beer is overstated, but the smooth combination of dry, tart and peat, with a slight fruitiness in just the right amount for a sweet compliment.

This is a stellar seasonal, and I hope they keep the recipe. I would not change a single thing. There seems to be confusion over what this beer is. Caldera's "site" says that it changes by season. This years seems to be somewhere between a tart stout and a old brown.
