We had the luxury of having this beer on tap at Novare Res in Portland Maine. One of my new favorites.

It comes out of the bottle a little bit "gushy". The beer color is dark brown, almost black, however some ruby color on the edge. Nice fine bubbles and creamy head. The aroma shows presence of dark fruit some notes of chocolate. Brown sugar too. The taste is sugary, some dark fruits. In the mouth, very effervescent. Complex. Some dark cacao bitterness on the finish.

Overall, this is a pretty decent beer.
Cheers all!

A very good bsda with a greater focus on the cocoa flavors than on the dark fruit flavors. Plenty of candi sugar sweetness. Definitely recommend.
