Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Very dark - essentially black - and nearly opaque. Big two-finger tan foamy head and visible carbonation on the low side. Really, a very nice looking black ale.

S: Not a huge aroma here overall. Some roasted malt bitterness with mild coffee notes, and some resinous hops.

T: Bitter chocolate malts, dark roasted malt dry bitterness. Resin and bitter citrus rind hops, and some bitter cacao flavors. Only hints of coffee-roasted malts. Finishes with bitterness and a lesser component of balancing malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is noticeable but not overdone.

O: This was easy to drink and pretty enjoyable. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it stand out particularly either. Worth a try if you see it.

Serving type: can
