Sampling right now on 8/1/14. Comes in a nice 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle that was on sale for $1.99, regularly $3.99. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass stein.

Pours a pitch black in color with a thin foamy beige head that settles to a very thin layering along the sides of the glass. Some light spotty lacing is seen and actually leaves a light ring when sipped. The aroma is of dark roasted malts but is faint. Perfect carbonation. The taste of roast malts are right up front with a hint of dark fruits and coffee even. More going on with the taste than what the aroma suggests. Very slight dry finish but doesn't last. Overall a very decent brew.
