Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is just slightly roasted. Body is light with the flavor very mild. Sweet hops with just a touch of roastedness. A good balance without making this beer too heavy on the dark malts.

Draft. Poured clear black color with medium brown creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted coffee and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium flavor of toasted sweet malt with a medium roasted sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting solid brew.

Draft to taster at Black Acre. Not sure why this is retired, as it was on draft when I stopped by Black Acre today. Looks good for the style; a semi-opaque dark brownish black with thin light beige lacing and a bit of reddish brown where light comes through the beer. Smells of dark malt, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.
