Poured from bottle into DFH signature glass.

Aroma is dry and roasty. Some raisin and a little booze.

Taste is similar. It is not a porter, not a stout, but similar. The mouthfeel is great with a clean aftertaste that is slightly dry but flavorful. Tastes a couple abv less than it is at 9%.

Overall another winner from ST. Will definitely be getting again.

1 Pint, 6 oz bottle poured into a glass.

A: I love the deep brown color. Medium sized head.

S: The perfect balance of toasted and alcohol scent.

T: A great black ale. Toasted malt flavor. Even a hint of hops in here.

M: Great mouthfeel. Not overly carbonated or too much alcohol.

O: I love black ales and lagers. Unfortunately, I don't see enough of them. I would definitely get this again.
