Deep black, opaque, even at the edges, just a glimmer of light comes through at the edges... No head, poured to the rim, but little retention, or livelyness when i swirled later on.. Loads of caramel in the aroma, has a distinct sweetness over a slightly roast very mildly chocolaty aroma... kinda lively mouthfeel, some lightly bitter chocolate flavors, very light alcohol, some subtle dark fruits, slightly milky... Lots of chocolate in the flavor...

Tap at Dock st. Dark color with dark tan head. Belgian yeast smell. Unique beer with an initial Belgian yeast taste accompanied by a slight sweetness that is soon followed by a stout bitterness that takes over. Nice beer, the alcohol content was not noticeable.
