Bottle from Proof Bottle Shop. Thick and pitch black with tan head that persisted fairly well. Collar hung until the end. Lots of dark malt, some sour cherry, some coffee, and a touch of grassy funk in the aroma. Taste is nearly identical to the smell, with a bit more of the sour cherry and grassy funk being prominent. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Very full bodied. Great after taste and a Guinness like mouthfeel.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served in a tasting glass at Buzz in LA. From notes. Reviewed 23 February 2013.

A: Ruby-dark and clear. Light head.

S: Dark sweet with spicy yeast and some artificial spices. Straightforward BSDA.

T: Sweetish, harshly spiced, and generally medicinal. Not to my liking.

M: M is for mediocre.

O: Meh. I wouldn't have another, but if you like BSDA (and I generally do) definitely try it.

Serving type: on-tap
