A cold bottle is poured aggressively into a pint glass. It produces a large head taking up nearly half the glass. Its so large that I can't fit the entire bottle into the glass in one pour.

The tan head is made up of small bubbles. As it settles, decent lacing remains. The body is an opaque black liquid.

Strong roasted and chocolate malts make up the aroma. Some aroma hops are apparent.

The beer has a very nice flavor. Bitterness from the hops combined with the roasted malts give off the essence of coffee.

The beer feels smooth and a touch creamy. Body is average and it feels slightly more carbonated than average.

This is a fine beer. It's nothing remarkable but it is satisfying and enjoyable. I'm grateful to my friend who brought it back from the DC area for me, but I don't see myself trying to trade for another bottle.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dominated by roasted malts. A good bit of roasted malts in the taste as well, some coffee, a bit of smokiness. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
