Bottle from Downtown Wine and Spirits.
Pours a solid black with a small but long lasting foamy tan head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, and spice with hints of roast, clove and pepper. The flavor comes through with chocolate caramel and light pitted fruits. Lots of bread and yeasty phenols as well as a hint of ethanol. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly slick mouthfeel. True to style and more carbonation than I enjoy this beer is pretty good but I would have liked a bit more caramelized sugars and dark fruit flavors.
