Sampled back on 1/1/16, the first new brew of the New Year and right on 1/1/16. Comes in a 12 ounce bottle and was chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 12 ounce snifter glass.

Brew pours very close to a pitch-black in color with some ruby-red highlights. A good 1-finger creamy beige head was seen after the slow pour. Sheets of ring-like lacing was seen after each sip. Aroma is of roasted malts and chocolate. More going on with the taste as there is a hint of toffee, mild coffee and burnt brown sugar even. Very smooth and went down easy with out any bitter or harsh after taste at all. Very tasy brew. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation for this style of brew. Really enjoyed this one! Great brew to start out the New year with! CHEERS!

A: Moderate pour yields 1/4 finger brown head with poor retention :-( Just shy of opaque "pitch brown". Good color/SRM.
S: Coffee, Hershey's chocolate syrup, slight campfire/wood smoke, biscuity grain.
T: Chocolate, slight plum, french roast coffee, modest amount of hops in the middle. Lactose/milk in the finish. Slight Necco wafer. Comes together perfectly.
M: Silky! Oh so nice. Fair bitterness settles in after creamy open.
O: Great smell, taste and mouthfeel. Would be truly great with better head retention. I'll buy again and would order another.

From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Reading JHTP11 Ch12. Coffee, with some milk chocolate notes later in the sip and a nice bitterness (not too american) in the end that invites you to take another sip. Low on foam. A bit more body would be appreciated
