Best before June 2012 printed on the label.
An average steady pour yields a finger and a half of sand colored head. While this slowly dissipates, I observe that the body appears black until held up to the light, when one can see that it is a deep dark brown. An attempt at lacing is noted, and head retains a good ring and thin layer up top.
A good deep malt aroma is coupled with a berry aroma that must be the elderberry. There are also the faint aromas of earthy hops and a light chocolate.
A gentle elderberry flavor guides you into this beer. It is followed up by light toasty malt, earthy hops and the suggestion of bakers chocolate.
Mouthfeel is light to medium. Carbonation doesn't have much to say unless you hold the beer on your tongue. It isn't sticky or coating, nor is it dry. It's simple.

A: Dark almost opaque, with a slight dark red tinge when held to the light. Creamy beige head. Sexy lacing.
S: Bog, toasted malt, chocolate, earthy. Much like a stout.
T: Toasty, earthy, dark malts, stout like, a certain amount of dark berry flavour, and the elderberry is evident when drunk slowly over the tongue with some air infusion. The finnish has the crisp yet bitter finnish of elderberry.
M: Slightly coridial like, minimally syrupy or sticky, with medium to low carbonation.
O: Does what it says: Elderberry and it delivers. I would think of it like a porter or stout in its scents and flavours. Worth a try, and would go well with elderberry pie.
