A: Pours a more or less opaque black with a thick khaki head.

S: Aromas of coffee, roasted grain, dark chocolate, herbs, bitter orange, lemon, lime, pine, and cedar quickly reveal themselves on the nose.

T: Notes of lemon rind, bitter orange, grapefruit pith, lime, kumquats, cedar, pine, herbs, roasted grain, leather, dark chocolate, burnt toast, and coffee coat the palate. The finish is bitter and citrusy with a combination of roasted grain, leather, burnt toast, coffee, lemon rind, pine, cedar, and grapefruit pith notes.

M: Medium in body and oilier than I would expect a beer of this style to be. Carbonation is firm. Very smooth and easy to drink.

O: A nice, easy drinking American black ale. It is not the most refined example of the style in the world, but it is still unique and very much worthwhile.
