12 oz. bottle with no freshness date; krausened and hence, bottle-conditioned. Pours an impenetrable black, with a half-inch khaki head that retains very well and leaves lots of lacing. In the bouquet, dark malts contribute cocoa, espresso, roast and dark berries, and there is a kiss of hops in the back. Very roasty, almost burnt malts lead into a strong bitter from the piney hops while blackberries and cake batter meld with fruity yeast. Delicate and layered. Medium to full body, dry and chalky, with low carbonation and a long bitter finish. It has quite a strong flavor, but it is nuanced and well-balanced. A wonderful beer that is well-worth seeking out.
