Bottle picked up for $2 on clearance @ Haskel’s. Dark black pour, dark brown carbonation and an aroma of dark chocolate and cherries. Flavor is nice earthy, peaty chocolate malt, hints of smoke and dark fruits with dry bitter bakers chocolate on the aftertaste. Possibly some very small hints of infection setting in, but still holding up really well!
