The last of the four beers that I tried while visiting Kane Brewing. Here goes:

A: Looks good, but there's really nothing special about it. Pours reddish-black with a fair head. However, the head leaves almost no lacing (figure that this has to do with the specific gravity of the beer), and it dissipates rather readily.

S: Dark fruit with some bitter chocolate. Can smell plum, raisins, and some espresso. While one might characterize these scents as complex, they are rather poorly combined and faint.

T: Interesting, but not my cup of tea. Taste is one of dark fruit followed by a coffeeish twang. That is, one detects sweet fruit at the front of the tongue but bitter coffee at the back of the tongue. Kind of weird, but I guess that some people like this.

M: Thick and sticky, but very little carbonation.

O: Good beer. but nothing special.
