12 oz can poured in a nonic pint glass. Purchased on my trip to New Orleans at the end of March.

Pours pitch black, but allows some cola highlights through when held to the light. Beige head is 1/2 inch on the pour but recedes to a thin cap. Lines of lacing left with every sip.

Nice aroma of citrus hops with a little burnt malt in the background.

Yummy blend of citrus and floral hops with dark and burnt malts. Grapefruit, pine, chocolate, coffee.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a pretty straight forward brew without much complexity, but very tasty.

Impressive head with staying power. Deep black color. Not a strong aroma ... Neutral. Well balanced flavor. No strong aftertaste. I'd buy again.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]
