I got this as an extra but I can't who it came from.

It pours a pitch black; I held my glass to the light and couldn't see any light or hints of red or...

There's a nice 1 finger head of off white foam and it has oodles of lacing.

It has an overall sweet smell to it. I'm guessing a fruity sweetness, dark pitted? mixed in with caramel malt. It's very pleasant.

My first sip and I do not taste anything fruit like at all. I find some grain and caramel malt, a bitterness that is dark chocolate insinuating, toffee, perhaps figs....a pretty good tasting brew except, I'd say, the goodish flavours there aren't really vibrant. I don't know when this originally came out but I reckon it's a good drinker now so no worries on my part.

The carbonation is on the light side with a more than ample body. Some alcohol that I can feel more than I can taste and that's always a good thing. Yep. I'm liking this Batch 10,000.
