COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our modern day brewery resides in a historical funeral home of the 1900s. An undertaker has not walked these halls for many years … that is until now. The Undertaker has been resurrected in this dark ale fermented with our favorite house yeast strain. Expect a dark, sinister pour with roasted coffee notes, hints of black fruit dipped in chocolate, and subtle smokiness. You can try to resist, but sooner or later the Undertaker is coming for you.

deyholla (6714) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Can. Pours a clear deep amber brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has lots of roasted malts with sweet dark grains, toffee and sweet dark fruits. Flavor has an odd combination of sweet fruits and dark grains and a hint of roasted malts.

Tmoney99 (10816) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Draft sample. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate yeast and dark toasted balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where surpassed.

Draft to snifter at Brewery Vivant. Looks good; a translucent dark cola with very light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, roast, and bit of Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells, but less robust, with a fairly thin mouthfeel. Solid, but smells better than it tastes.

Can from Champanes, this ale had a clear dark brown opaque pour and made a light tan and tan colored cover that receded quickly to a ring and a few small islands of bubbles, the nose had aromas of roasted malt notes with coffee, dark fruit that resembled raisin and date, some faint smoke in the background and a little chocolate, the flavors were roasted malt with a light roasted bitterness, a little bread crust and some dark fruit, the finish had some dark fruit with roasted malt and a little sweetness but ends with some dryness, the mouth feel was on the lighter side of medium, it had a bit of creaminess and average carbonation, a dark fruit and dark roasted malt beer that was not as sweet or big as a dark Belgian strong ale, it was a nice drink.

demitriustown (1077) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
1 pint can: Aroma is dark fruit, hints of dark malt and somewhat of a yeast note. Appearance is a black pour with a thick tan head that linger for a while. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, malts, and yeast. Palate is lightly stick in the mouthfeel and a lingering dark fruit aftertaste. Overall, Decent stuff but nothing special. Cheers!

Solid balanced dubbel-like Belgian. Good yeast notes. Nice dark fruit notes. Nothing calls out for attention here, but nothing is less than good either.

NeoHippie2 (1038) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Can. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of sweet malts and subtle dark fruits. Flavor is thin and watery compared to what I was hoping for. Just not much going on. Unoffensive but also underwhelming.

Had this beer on tap at brewery vivant. Tasted strongly of dark fruits and molasses. Very good overall, would have again.

16 oz can. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is roasty at first, but is more so dominated by dark fruit (grape), molasses, hints of iron and medicinal cherry. Flavor leans more on the roasty cocoa, but still a fair amount of molasses and dark fruit (both raisin and grape). Pretty nice, though I somewhat wish the fruit flavors were increased.
