A-Black in the glass, some carbonation, one finger off white head.

S-Good deal of dark fruits, some smoke and some roasted malt.

T-Lots of dark fruits, along with smoke, roasted malt, slight chocolate and no bitterness.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation and almost watery.

O-The booze was hidden well and the smoke and dark fruits was an interesting combination, they just didn't fully go together.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and vanilla aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and vanilla flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid roast aspects all around.
