Draft... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aromatic highlights are black patent malt, charcoal and pine resin. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is of bittersweet black malt accompanied by a moderate measure of chocolate and caramel sweetness and a similar serving of piney hop bitterness. Bittersweet, lightly grassy, roasty finish.
