(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a dense black body that glows a hint of walnut brown at the base of the glass, there is a thin meniscus of beige film that sticks to the glass.


S- There is a dark berry hint that blends with some dark toffee notes and then more roasted malt notes cover the fruit character as it opens

T- The earthy flavor with a soft berry note with a fruity yeast note and some cola notes in the finish. There is a slight vinous and resin note in the finish and some darker roast malt flavor come through as it opens.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a good little fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This is a well-balance beer but the flavors that are there are a bit subtle and get covered by the roasted malt notes as it opens up.
