Spectacular beer from New Jersey. Poured into a Collins glass @ 59 degrees.
A- Jet black beer with one finger of head, light tan.
S- Sweet fruit, currants or black cherries maybe. Slight alcohol on the nose.
T- great taste. Very complex. Chocolate, molasses, currants, cherries and moderate alcohol flavors.
M- slightly dry finish to complement the sweet taste. Would have preferred it slightly drier.
Overall a great beer. I think 59 was a bit too high of a temp for serving but I was feeling impatient. Overall a great beer.

Bottle poured into my DC Brau glass.
Decent look with a frothy thick tannish head, the body isn't really black but super dark brown, some bubbles rising to the top.
The smell is not great, it is sort of a watered down malt base, some slight sweeter alcohol bourbon notes, but there is some nice leather and musty notes that are nice, though not very appropriate to the style. Just not overly aromatic even when letting it warm up nicely.
The taste is a little better, and actually the creamy mouthfeel helps the beer come alive. It has a sort of Irish stout taste in its mouthfeel, a dry chocolatey and grainy flavor, though it isn't great that there is a very distracting after taste of metal and what only drinks like that taste when a tap line is not clean, though its out of a bottle. Overall a bit confusing in the flavor, some smatterings of bourbon and oak but no flavors are very well balanced.
Eh, this is only ok.

Was surprised by this brew. Found it to be very drinkable.
A - Dark, but not like black ink
S - Not overly strong some hop overtones and roasted notes common with stouts
T- Surprisingly smooth, finishes well with hints of coffee and chocolate
M- Easy on the palate with medium to low carbonation
O- I've had this on several occasion and it is holding true to my initial response.
Serving type: on-tap
