12 ounce bottle - $4.29 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out an onyx black body with a lush, tall, but subsiding beige head with a creamyish quality to it.

Smell: A boldy robust nose, chary and ashen with some molasses an underlying fruitiness and an implied harsh, blackened husk astringency. Warming a tad brings about licorice and Industrial Revolution era soot.

Taste: Notably roasty from the get-go with some blackstrap molasses, a slightly obscured, slightly sourish berry-like fruitiness trying to emerge. Some sweetness beneath the hard roast. More char midway. The bitterness seems more a product of the astringent black malts used as opposed to an hop additions. Powdered licorice. Sooty smoke. Bitter, roasted finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not diggin' this one, guys.
