Had at stubs.

Poured into a goblet.

Pours hardly and head. No retention or lace. Color is a deep brown, call it black.

Aroma: Cherries, raisins, dark malts, chocolate. Decent, but nothing special.

Taste: Lots of dark fruits mixed in with a metallic taste. Some chocolate and toffee. Nothing impressing.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat smooth, a little crisp. Medium bodied with a low amount of carbonation. Ends a little sticky with malt aftertaste flavors.

Overall, this beer was unimpressive. Nothing I want to have again. I don't think they should have let cold spring brew this beer, as I think it could have turned out so much better.

Serving type: on-tap

pours pretty brown. all the flavors come through in this beer, and everything listen on the can, vanilla, fig, all blended well. sweeter than i prefer, and not getting the bite that I usually am tickled by. it does have its own character, a nice variation of a Belgian dark ale. unique

Serving type: can
