Had this on-tap at the brew pub on 2013-09-26 and again from a growler on 2013-09-29 from their "Outpost" production brewery.

A - Mostly opaque ruby-brown with a 3-finger head that fades to 1-finger quickly and leaves nice lacing.

S - Medium-dark roasted wheat, coffee, touch of chocolate, mild grass.

T - Much like the aroma with an emphasis on the roasted grain. Don't get much coffee and just a smidge of chocolate in the aftertaste (very lightly sweet). The hops are strong and somewhat grassy with quite a significant bitterness with the IBU listed as 50. Dries quickly with little residual sugar but plenty of roasted and hop bitterness.

M - Light body and light-medium carbonation. Thinly creamy.

O - This is a pretty flavorful beer when you want a session beer leaning to the dark side. Not a black IPA but leaning that direction. (844 characters)
