Poured into a big stein. My cousin bought me a growler from the PX at Ft Lee, so I just had to drink it out of gratitude.
A: Dark as old sin. Over half inch of thick creamy head that stayed through the drink and left lots of pretty lacing.
S: Sweetis, caramel malts upfront with a bit of of grassy/floral hops sneaking in back. Thin but enjoyable aroma.
T: Yum. Immediate taste of caramel, followed by dark fruit like plum and raisin. The hops is subdued but still present.
M: Medium to full bodied. Smooth without being too syrupy. Most enjoyable.
D: I'm glad it came in a growler size. That's a lot of beer. I like the way the foam clings to my moustache.
Nice artwork on the lable. Another fine addition to my collection. (1060 labels so far)

Poured a pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan head. Below average sporadic lacing on the sides. Minimal retention.
Smelled malt heavy, metallic, smoky wood fire, red malts and rye hops.
Tasted caramel, toffee, amber malt, light wood fire and overall a bit lighter than I thought it would be.
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish.
Wasn’t a fan of this beer. I probably even overrated it a bit.
