Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 16-oz. glass
From: My aunt Jenny
Price: N/A for a variety 12-pack
Purchased: N/A
Consumed: Jan. 17, 2014
Misc.: N/A

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.
