22oz. Surprised to see this one still around at one of my local stores. Really dark pour, pretty much no light gets through at all. 2 fingers of tan head, maintains the large rocky head for quite a while.
Balanced though somewhat subdued aroma of pine, herbal hop, roast malt/coffee. I'm guessing that time has lessened this some.
Some piney resin up front, quickly to some roast malt. Finishes dry with more hop pine/herbal and roast, cocoa, light coffee.
Carbonation is a little assertive at first but mellows. Tickles the tongue and cheeks nicely. Almost creamy, yet very clean. Near medium bodied.
Enjoyed this one, as I have nearly every Black Ale I've had to date. Just a really manageable style.
