12 oz can. The brew pours a sinister black color into my glass, leaving a slight coating of head over top of the brew. This beer is dark. No light was making it through the stream pouring out of the can. Wow. The aroma is ashy burnt roasted maltwith some sweet molasses notes and just a hint of chocolate. This one smells promising. The first sip brings a strong burnt malt backbone that moves to a light molasses sweetness, followed by a solid pine hop that brings notes of coffee to the party as it mingles with the burnt notes. There is a mild bitterness that lingers on my tongue well after swallowing the beer. I'm pretty impressed with this one. It pulls all the flavors together; I had it on draft and was not at all impressed, so this is a pleasant surprise. Mouthfeel is very thick, with just a hint of carbonation. This certainly fits the brew. Overall, this brew delivers. I think the deepness of the burnt malt really works well with the hop profile of the brew to bring new flavors from the marriage that would not otherwise develop. Glad to have had this one.
