12 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a snifter
Batch 92

This beer pours black in color and is topped with several inches of tan head that leaves some nice lacing.

I smell milk chocolate with a hint of smoke.

The taste begins with milk chocolate. Through the middle I get some earthy flavors and some more familiar old ale flavors in the finish.

Medium to full mouthfeel

This is different from all the other old ales that I have tried. This one is more like a stout with the color, flavor, and aroma. It is pretty good.

Very dark appearance. Very little aroma tobacco? Almost no head or carbonation. Taste is a little fruity but bitter and the bitterness increases toward the end. I did not notice any alcohol taste.
