It pours a rich, malty deep darkish red color but the head fast disappears and the taste is just so-so average. A bit light on the ABV for the style. Lots of maltiness with definite hints of chocolate. Nothing to really linger on the tongue and a bit bland tasting. Probably not too bad as these beers go, but definitely not head of the class.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance/ Very dark, almost black. A full 2 fingers of rich, brown foam that left a nice sticky lacing.
Smell/ A nice malt aroma with a toasty coffee and chocolate highlights in the background.
Taste/ The thing that I tasted most was a strong coffee flavor followed by a malty chocolate flavor. A slight hop presence was in the background.
Mouth Feel/ This was a very smooth beer wit a nice little hop bite right at the end.
Over All/ I really liked this beer. I think it was pretty well in line with the style. It is not the best winter style beer I have had but I went back and some more when I finished my first six pack. I would drink this again at any time.
