Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of near burnt dark malt with a hint of chocolate. Med body, maybe better. Flavor is slightly "sour" dark burnt malt with some dark chocolate and probably a ggod dose of bitter hop. With time it develops a touch smoke. Nice stuff.
