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.
