Opaque black beer, pale tan head. Softish palate, crisp and minerally edge. Minerally dark malt, not heavy, roasty or bitter. Mild tangy fruits in the undertone - orange and darker fruits. Cocoa powder chocolate dominates before the minerally dry finish. Pretty light for it’s abv and with good flavour!

Tmoney99 (13475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, licorice and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy chocolate sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This beer exceeded my expectations.
