On tap at the Pyramid Brewery in Sacramento. Pours a light black with a little bit of light mocha colored head. The aroma is primarily chocolate and roasted malts, with slight notes of dark fruits. The taste gives you those same roasted malts and chocolate, along with a slight bit of bitterness on the back end because of the hops. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light and thin, at least for a 9% ABV beer, and not a whole lot of carbonation.

This beer is just ok, not bad. It's worth giving a try, although the lack of complexity and thickness were disappointing.

Growler rom Albertsons. Dark brown pour with nice medium fluffy head. Heads lasts and leaves curtains of lacing. Aroma is dark malt, nuts and bit of prunes. Taste brings more malt, with the bitterness coming from the roast, not the hops. The malt masks the ABV well, not even catching any warmth. Smooth and silky with a small bite.
