Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - A rigorous pour yields a 1 finger head that doesn't last too long. Color is a mostly opaque blackish amber. Looks kinda like a coke. Lacing is moderate.

S - Dark smoky malt. Alcohol.

T - Licorice and dark malt up front with a dry bitter finish. Alcohol is certainly evident.

M - A bit overcarbonated for the style. I felt like it amplified the bitterness making for a rather unbalanced beer.

O - A strong ale that doesn't really shine in the flavor department. It is certainly strong in some aspects but unbalanced.
