Picked this up in a mixed six at Al's of Hampden recently. Poured out a dark ruby brown from the bottle into my Duvel tulip. Modest head with little retention and a bit of lacing evident.

Smell is malty and sweet, not much hops evident but not overwhelming "fruity" either.

Taste is a smoky malt with a bit of chocolate.

Mouthfeel is a bit chewy and thick with minimal carbonation.

Drinkability would be limited on this one for me - one at the end of the evening is ok.

Not my favorite style by far but this is certainly a well made beer.

A- Dark brown beer with a small head and some lacing

S- some dark fruit notes, very malty

T- leather notes, light tones of dark fruit, dark brown sugar, biscuit notes

M- medium carbonation

Overall, this is a decent beer nothing to complain about nothing to rave about.
