Pours jet black with huge billowing brown head that held well. Smells of dates, raisin bread, and chocolate. Up front it tastes of sweet chocolate and bread pudding. Has an obvious alcohol taste following with a touch of carbonation and a zing from the alcohol. Has a bitter aftertaste that leaves the palette begging for another drink.

Served at 60 degrees. Slow stiff pour. Frothy, dough like head. An unusually strong tangy flavor of co2 slightly off putting but nice sturdy beer.

Pours like old motor oil with foamy head that dissipates quickly - splotchy lacing Lite molasses nose, Strong coffee taste with moderate bitterness - big flavors all working well, Great non-slimy mouth feel - ok carbonation, Overall a good example of this often overlooked style - not for everyone but I'll take another one

Tasty, but inferior to Narwhal. Dammit.

Had it in a bottle, no one knows how old it is. Heard it's great on draft.
