A: The beer appears jet black when viewed from afar but upon closer inspection when held up to a bright light it is clear dark red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and malt extracts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste seems to have flavors of malt extracts and bits of associated sweetness along with notes of dark malts and hints of chocolate. Slight hints of roasted malts also become noticeable as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but the smell and taste lacks the complexity of the fine examples of the style. My favorite part about this beer was its smooth mouthfeel.

Beautifully smooth, gentle, lush dark beer that coats the tongue and slips down like a warm hug.
