A - Sliver of orange. Tall tight tan head

S - Mild malts and cocoa. Mild but nice

T - Roasted malts with some dark fruit. Mild bitter hit

M - Thick with good coating, howver it seemed bubbly like a cola

O - a lot of potential but it falls a little short

About the most distinctive flavor of dark roasted barley I can remember. Nice balancing act between the sweet malt and the black charred flavors. Near black with a brown edge in the Leffe goblet. Nice and sudsy with a fine carbonation on the tongue. I like this more as I sip on it. Really a big mouthful of flavor. Nose of caramel with some hoppy resins. Moderate bitterness. A little sour burnt malt taste, but just enough to give it an edge.

22 oz bottle from Beer Revolution in Oakland. Not a bad deal for $4.99.

22 oz bottle, no freshness date, poured into pint glass

Visual: Pours black with a cream-tan head.

Nose: Butter-bread, dark chocolate, caramel, followed by a spicy astringency.

Taste: Mild coffee, toasted grain, sweet berries (jam like sweetness), chocolate.

Mouth: Medium body, light middle, leaves sticky.

Overall: I like it. Up front the taste is pretty good. I especially like the berry sweetness; however, my palate grew immune to the taste midway through the beer.
