I'm with Hero....got to try it at Dark Lord Day. A big hearty TANKS (in a brogue) to whomever placed this on the tasting tables! I was SO tempted to have this with one of the donuts...
Nice dark copperish colour with a loose, uneven tan head. (The head reaaly was kind of unattractive...maybe just my pour...also seemed to have a greenish hue- but that could have been due to the translucent plastic Solo cup. Next year, I bring my own real glass.)
The smell was all abut fruity amltiness and floral hops. Very nice.
Flavour was, as you might expect, a bit woody, with a nice velvety sweet maltiness and a nice licorice hint. Very nice, but I really expected a tad moore oomph.
Thick and even on the tonuge, the carbonation seemed not very present- but that could have been due tot he bottle being turned up so many times by the time I go to it.
Drinkable? Does the pope shit int he woods? OK, maybe not. But yeah. OH yeah.
