Filled my growler up with this earlier today.

Appearance - Just as the name implies, big & black. Not as dark as a stout, but darker than most porters. Quite foamy. Had about a two finger head after being poured into a pint glass.

Smell - Floral and somewhat nutty. Not this beer's strongpoint. It's biggest strongpoint is it's...

Taste - A fantastic amalgamation of wheat, caramel, coffee, and hops. Much hoppier than I expected. All of these characteristics are nearly undetectable in the smell, but undeniable in taste.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth and drinkable. 7% APV isn't particularly high for a craft beer, but it isn't low either. I knocked back two pints in about 30 mins with ease.

Overall - A fine brew. And a great one to toast off to my recently fallen idol...James Gandolfini.
