Pours out a nice dark brown color, almost black in appearance, its topped off with a semi-dark tan head that’s bubbly and quickly dissipates into a thin ring of lacing with an island of bubbles in the middle. Floral and fruity aromas are present, some spiced apples and mild fig smells too. This is a very bitter ale at first, good roasted coffee flavors do come through, the spices and fruits take a back seat and are detectable. It is dry and light-to-medium bodied. The aftertaste is sweet, the bitterness calms down, the roasted coffee mellows out, and the spice comes through a bit more. The bitterness calms down, as the ale warms up, overall not a bad beer.

This one pours a beautiful rich black with a lightly colored head that is effervescent, lively and settles at a more than acceptable rate. There is decent uniform lacing as well.

The nose is smoky sweet malt with notes of dark chocolate and hops.

The taste is nice and complex roasted goodness with strong hopping that is prevalent and elegantly balanced with the roasted barley giving way to sweetness that is a mix of caramels, coffee, toasted bread and spice with a very nice and pleasant dry finish.

The mouthfeel is rich but not heavy and is just right for this type of brew.

Overall the beer is extremely good and rather enjoyable. I highly recommend it and will be drinking this one again.

Good "schtuff"!!! And I'm not only saying this because I've had a glass or two.
