Served in an Allagash goblet. Pours a blackened cola color with medium-sized khaki head and plenty of sticky lacing.

Smells of burnt roasted malts with notes of chocolate, coffee and toffee and some peppery spices.

Tastes like it smells with deeply roasted malt and mingling flavors of chocolate, resiny hop, spices and a slightly astringent yeasty background, followed a taste of dark rum.

A spritzy effervescence fades quickly and a fuller body is revealed. A bit more of the malty sweetness is noticed as it warms.

Had this at lunch at Ron's in Exton, served in a tulip glass

Pours a deep, opaque black color, with a medium white head.

Roastedness dominates the nose, a sweet anise backnote follows

A licorice and roasted malt combination, a hint of coffee in the roast, but not dominating at all.

Creamy clean feeling, not oily. Fairly lightly carbonated, pleasant.
