12oz bottle in a standard pint glass. Bottle printed with 01-09-15, assume it was bottled 01-09-14.

A: Pitch black. Small creamy tan-colored head that faded quickly. Lightly lacing on the glass.

S: Milk chocolate, cream, coffee and espresso, roasty malts.

T: Salty flavor with a roasty bitterness of burnt bread and espresso.Hints of dark fruit phenols form the yeast, not dominant or easily distinguished. Lingering coffee as it finishes with a sweet aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Slightly boozy, too. Did I mention, salty?

M: Medium body, lightly carbonated. Dry finish.

O: Interesting beer. Saltiness, chocolate, roasty bitterness, coffee, even some fruity sweetness. Complex, almost busy flavor profile. Not something I'd be falling down to get again, but I wouldn't turn it down, and would definitely recommend it to a beer connoisseur to add to their repertoire.
