Bottle poured into chalice. Nice dar red mohogany - huge head considering it was poured into a chalice. Smell malt and fruit - faint. Taste was similar - I would not consider the flavor to be strong though - very nice - not overpowering - clean finish. Mouthfeel good body well carbed. This won't overpower you - I can see drinking two or three of these easily. It is what it is, I don't necessarily think its worth the price though - based on this site - I guess my expectations were a little high.

I had this one on bottle.
I like the appearance of this beer. Brown - black color with a little bit red into it.
The head looks a bit tan and frothy.
This beer smells, in my opinion, like nuts, dark chocolate and a little burn smell.
I tasted a litte bitterness which persist to the finish. The finish duration is average.

A: Dark brown with light brown 1 1/2 inch head.

S: Malts, dates, plums, slight hop scent. (i cannot believe somebody said vomit in another review...!!!)

T: I taste some cherry in this... Then I taste the malts and a little hop profile in there. It goes a little dry towards the end, then gets a little sweet. I do not find the alcohol to be overbearing like others do. Pretty damn good.

M: Velvet. Wonderful.

D: Cannot wait to get more next month. If I would have known it ws this good I would have gotten a full case. Very great beer!

Good taste, but too much carbonation.
