Dark black with a 1/2 finger tan head, with pretty good retention and spotty lacing. The aroma is nutty with coffee, dark roasted malt, and earthy hops. The aroma is nothing special. I hope the taste is better.

Tastes both sweet and bitter with coffee, dark roasted malt, earthy hops, a little bit of chocolate, and molasses. This is supposed to be an American Black Ale? Has way too much malt for the style, and the hops take a back seat, which is not what I look for in this style of beer.

Medium bodied with low carbonation. Has a earthy hop and coffee aftertaste. This is too malt forward for the style in my opinion. I'm glad I only bought one bottle.
