A: black with some highlights of deep burnt reds when held to the light. An off white head leaves a moderate amount of lacing. Poured into an american style pint glass.

S: heavy roasted malts and a nutty profile right off the bat. The sweetness of the malt comes out and the hops are mild.

T: the hops are a little more noticeable and equal out the malt extremely well. The malt gives a nice roasted smokey flavor while the hops presents a more grass like note. The nut flavor is still there and is a lot like roasted walnuts.

MF: thick and full of flavor, each character or this beer transfers abruptly but not too abrasivly. The overall profile of the beer makes me think of winter without this being a winter warmer beer. The last thing present on the tongue is the soft bitterness that lingers, its a nice addition to a dark brew I welcome.

D: a local bar with great atmosphere adds to the drink ability of this beer, also the ability to pick up a growler on the way home from work. However this is a beer I would (if needed) go out of my way for.
