Taste of dry burnt malts, very toasty, mild coffee, nuts, deep dark hop presence. Bitter on the aftertaste, tangy abv bounce, this one dives deep in the grave. Deep and dark the undertaker lies.

Shared 16 oz can
Clear dark red-brown body with a good head.
Overly boozy aroma and a bit more funk in the flavor than preferred.
Near medium body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint can poured into a goblet. Pours a dark brown with a tiny tan head that faded pretty quick and leaves spotty lacing that slides back down into the beer. Aroma of dark fruit, citrus, rye, dough, bubblegum, licorice, clove, bit of smokiness. Taste is bitter dark fruit, bubblegum, bread, clove, licorice, salt, smoke, with coffee and chocolate in the background. Kind of dull tasting overall. Quick, dry finish of clove and smoke. Medium bodied, thin texture, moderately low carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special either. I wish I would have read the reviews before I picked this up, I would have gotten something else.

Not bad. Pours a dark chocolate color. Aromas aromas of sour cherry, dark malts, a bit of chocolate. Falls a bit flat on the palate. Malty and a bit sour. Average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1 pint can. Pours a clear, dark caramel/black with a half finger, khaki head that thins to a film. Aroma has mixed notes of bubble gum, grain, roasted malts, dark fruits, and not a lot else. Not much standing out. Taste is balanced. Roasty malts, dark chocolate, bubble gum, and dark fruits to start, then going to a smoky ending. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth. Easy drinking. Overall a nice beer. Mildly roasty with hints of Belgian yeast, and smoke.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz can thanks to Willrunforbeer. Deep brown color with thin lasting head. Aroma is a rye type grain, coffee grounds, rye malt and old rye.
Flavor is about the same as the aroma sadly. Thin watery, mineral note with a off putting sour rye character. The yeast is not enjoyable at all. Just plain sour rye and a odd Belgian spice note. Will not drink this again.

16oz can from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours black, or a very, very brown with almost no head. Aroma has spicy yeast, sweet malts, some fruit and light smoke. Taste is of sweet malts, tangy spices and a touch of dark fruit. Medium bodied and sweet. Finishes sweetly malty with tangy spice. Interesting, a bit misleading due to the color, and fairly tasty. 13.5
