Big thanks to my friend Larry Lushia for bringing me back a few of these from Upstate New York! Cheers!

Served in a chilled tulip glass.

-Appearance 4.0: Poured out a chocolaty brown; not completely black. Nice 1/2" head that faded away into pleasant white swirls.

-Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet of chocolate, toasted grains. Aroma is somewhat flat, but does not detract from the enjoyment of the beer at all.

-Taste 4.5: Sweet up front, with slight hints of chocolate. Middle features a lot of subdued barley and slight hints of hops. Finish is more of that sweetness and toasted grains, along with still more chocolaty goodness. Aftertaste is creamy and smoky; very, very enjoyable.

-Mouthfeel 4.0: Carbonation was right on the nose for this style and certainly adds to the enjoyment of the beer.

-Overall 4.0: Very good to excellent strong ale. This is somewhere between a porter and a stout and just very enjoyable. If you are a fan of unique beers THAT ARE ACTUALLY ENJOYABLE this is the brew for you. If you find it, buy it.
