Reviewed from notes. Consumed 08/5/09
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard water glass. Firm pour yields a 1/4 inch of slightly off white head. Nice lacing. Color is a dark ruby brown, almost black.
Nose- Mild roasted grain, caramel.
Pallate- Somewhat stoutish, I guess I should have expected as much. Lighter than a stout. Nice chocolate/coco presence. Some molasses and dark fruit. Not heavy or boozy as it would appear. Some caramel sweetness underneath. Finishes a bit dry.
Mouthfeel- Nice carbonation.
