Poured from a can thanks to Bytemesis. Thanks!. Pours a darker, murky black with a thin greyish head of foam. Aroma is floral chocolate and coffee. Smells bitter and earthy. Taste is bitter at first, but mellows out to a nice sweetness. Nice well balanced finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of roasted malt, dark chocolate, red grape, and a bit of caramel. More of that vineous and chocolate combo in the mouth, with a bit of a coffee note coming into play as well. Medium bodied with a slightly ashy finish. A well made classic interpretation.
