Consumed a month after bottled-on date.
Most transparent 'black' (ruby) i've ever seen, thinner than even Guinness perhaps. This must be quite low in gravity. Pre-sip cling, dirty ivory head.
Nose is caustic, copper/pennies, roast, flat crispy bread, abrasive RH house yeast, coffee grounds. Rootbeer.
Taste is much smoother and palatable. Subtle, English-style porter with an unfortunately dead hop-taste i've got in alot of RH's beers.
Brittle all in all and rather unsatisfying. Pennies. Not so drinkable, but passable in certain situations I suppose.
Serving type: bottle
