In the past few years I've given this beer quite a few tries. I live in Nashville (Yazoo's HQ) and my girlfriend loves this beer, but it just hasn't grown on me like I wished it had.
A: I love the color of this beer. It looks black until you put light behind it. Then it glows a deep ruby red, beautiful. I would only rate this beer higher if it had better head retention/lacing.
S: When I first poured it, I got some cocoa notes, and a slight spicy/smoky note. As it's warmed up, I smell alcohol which is very strange considering this beer is only 3.5%
T/M: When it's cold, I get more of the cocoa-smokey flavors. It's nicely bitter, but the high carbonation gives it a sharpness that doesn't fit it too well. As it warms up, the cocoa flavors fade and the beer gains an acrid quality.
O: It's a pretty beer, but it doesn't have enough to keep me around. Even if it did, I would need to let it de-carbonate to let the flavors bloom more.
