Sampling right now on 12/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured in to a pilsner glass.

This brew actually pours a pitch black in color with a thin tan head. Areas of spotty lacing is seen when sipped that ends up sliding back down the sides of the glass after a while. The aroma is of roasted malts like in a stout with some cocoa powder. Pretty much the same is said for the taste with a hint of dark fruit. Medium-bodied with low carbonation which is perfect for this type of brew. Very smooth and tasty brew for the colder months

A: 4.0 - Dark brown with a substantial head of dense foam.
S: 3.5 - Slight cocoa scent, with a little bit of stout tartness.
T: 3.5 - Pretty straightforward, with a light roast taste, a little cocoa. Yeast gives a touch of dark fruitiness to it.
M: 3.75 - Mostly neutral, a little smooth texture.
O: 3.5 - Pretty ordinary dark beer. Reminds me of the early 90s microbrew scene, before people starting doing interesting stuff.
