I haven't had a good beer in a while so this review may be a little partial. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel tulip.

A - A medium pour yields about a finger of brown head that dissipates pretty quickly. Body color is clear black and lacing is so-so.

S - Smells of light biscuity malt. Don't really get much of a dark malt character on the nose.

T - The taste starts out great, but as the beer warms the taste is starting to get more sour and metallic. It was nice and clean to start with roasted malt hints.

M - Medium carbonation and light body. I was afraid it would be undercarbonated.

O - This beer is pretty crisp and refreshing when cold, but as it warms it gets a little ugly.
