Actually a dark brown rather than black; essentially clear with a nice creamy tan head. Leaves good lacing.
Surprise! There's a significant amount of hop flavor in here. Not a hoppy beer, for sure, but with malt and hops in equal balance, more or less. I got two very different impressions from tastings on two occasions, both from fresh bottles. Originally, I thought it had a ice aftertaste featuring spicy hops and dark malt, and was well crafted. My more recent tasting provided a poor aftertaste that substantially detracted from my enjoyment.
O - a fine new introduction well worth a try, especially on those occasions where only beers from major distribution networks are available.
