Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 20 oz pint glass.
A. Very dark, black with deep mahogany edges suggesting clarity. Two inch tight, tan head, great stability. Slowly disipates to lace.
S. Slight alcohol, roasted grain and maybe a hint of smoke. All inn all not a very strong nose on this one.
T. Surprisingly empty taste up front. Middle had some roasted grain and some smoke. Aftertaste of hops bitterness, not much though. As the beer warmed these flavors became more evident.
M. Slight carbontation, appropriate for the style. Surprisingly thin considering the style.
D. Drinkable. Overall seemed vacant to me. The framing is up and ready but there is no drywall, much less fittings, paint and furniture... Color me unimpressed.
