From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 13, 2014.

The pour is dark brown with ruby red hues but looks black away from the light. There is a long lasting off-white head on top.

The aroma really put me off. I don't know if it was an infected bottle or what but I got melted butter galore which superseded all the other dark malt characters I had hoped for. They were there but buried. Some earthy hops.

The body is medium.

The taste recovered things a bit with a more forward dark sweet malt and licorice character. The butter was not as obvious in the flavor. It ended mildly bitter and pleasant.

I get a weak light tan head. Body is dark brown into black. The lace attempt slides right down into the glass.

Smells of dark roasted malt and coffee.

Malty good start. A little coffee and a hint of toffee. Slight smoke hints with a little nuttiness.

Medium bodied. Leaves a slight residue on the back of the tongue.
