look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours with a mahogany, almost black color that's brownish at points as well. Two fingers worth of a lightly tan, dense head.
First thing I noticed in the aroma was the tartness and hints of sour, which is pretty characteristic of BMF brews. Very vinous; some dark grapes, a bit of maltiness; and a hint of bittersweet chocolate comes in. The flavor follows along the aroma lines as well, but as the brew warms and warms you get more of the chocolate and a bit of roasted malt behind the vinous characteristics and it actually makes for interesting drinking. Not quite what I expected, but good. Medium body that is a bit thin for the style; OK carbonation level though. Not a bad sipping brew, and it had some interesting points, just a bit much after a bit. Alcohol was completely hidden, which was nice.

Poured at the wonderful Duckworth's - Park Rd - Charlotte, NC... all drafts $3.50 today!
It pours very dark brown with little to no head or lacing. The nose is toasty - pleasant to look at and smell, but the taste is a letdown - especially after the amazing brews I recently tried by them in VA @ Mekong. It's thinner than an imperial stout should be - very much a flat cola thing going on. It won't sour me on this brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
