Probably my favorite from Bayou Teche. Tasty, roasty brew.

Served from the tap in shaker pint glass.

Black with ruby in the corners of the glass., foamy off white head. Mild toasty roasty aroma - a bit of coffee and chocolate. Slick oily mouthful, moderate carbonation.
Overall a nice balance of flavor and easy drinkability.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A big sudsy and froth tan head, growing to an easy fistfull big size, and slowly settling. Give to ring lacing, and foamy rivers when tipped. Body color is a classic dark walnut brown and nearly black with some clarity through the head. Really nice looking.

Good light roasted dark grains on the nose. Some faint milk chocolate, almost a clean mineral finish but with a bigger malt sensing depth coming. Some powdery quality of light cocoa as well and dried nuts.

Very nice light bodied, with a good finish. Light roast turns more towards coffee and chocolate, with a good thick quenching palate. Some nice yeast and malt thickness here for the body as well, with an almost crackly taste.

Overall a real nice refresher. Doesn't quite remind me of schwarzbier, but a solid dark ale if there was one.
