12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with a 1/4 inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. The aroma is light, it smells like roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Good thing the taste is stronger compared to the aroma. It tastes like roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and burnt/charred malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating with low/moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, it's certainly worth a try. $1.99 a single.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Color is dark brown. Peat black inside the glass. Just about half a finger thick tan colored head with not much retention. Decent lacing.

Aroma is of charred and roasted dark malts. Not much booze coming through. Strength is moderate.

Taste is of charred malts and roasted. Very little coffee. Mild flavor. Semi-sweet finish. Somewhat dry as well.

Mouth feel is medium bodied. Low to moderate carbonation.

Average stuff all over.
