12 oz. with no freshness date - served slightly chilled in a flute. Pours a black that is deep red through the light and it's topped with a 1 inch tan head that leaves nice lacing. Smells earthy with some spicy hops and traces of chocolate, coffee, and soap. Lots of earthy malts with a noticeable hop bitterness and hints of dark fruits, coffee, and smoke. It's kinda tingly with a medium to light body. Not too complicated and easy to drink. The glass held less that 12 ounces and I noticed the second pour was much more flavorful and left sediment at the bottom of the glass - didn't know it was unfiltered, not that I'm complaining.
