Pours a solid dark brown with garnet highlights when held to light and a huge fluffy beige head that persists forever. I can smell chocolate, caramel, and spicy wheat with a bit of pepper and a hint of oxidation. Light sweet fruits mixed with a bit of yeasty funk and fruitiness round out the nose well. The flavor is chocolate and caramel up front followed by a huge ashy and then oxidized taste that seems odd. Light fruit and yeasty phenols sweep in to mop that up then a chocolatey roasty ashy flavor lingers long into the finish of every sip. Medium body with a high level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. This one isn't bad, it actually grew on me through the glass, but I'm not sure I'd grab it again.
