Tap into tall half pint. Rich Amber mahogany color, thin cream white head sticking to side of glass. Chocolate nose almost porter like. in the mouth robust malt, finished with dark cacao notes, giving the impression of a very dry porter. Finished fairly fast and clean inviting rapid revisits.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very deep red-amber with a thick light tan head. Aroma is nice chocolatey malts with some faint molasses and maybe a liitle dried fig. Taste is malt heaven with chocolate malts, molasses, and a creamy chocolate finish - there’s a tinge of hoppy bitterness in the finish, as well. Good after work beer.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Purchased as Harpoon Dark: Aroma is malty with hints of dark fruit. Pours a dark brown with a none lasting off-white and no lacing. The taste is malt up front, hints of dark fruit in the middle, and a hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a pleasant beer, nothing outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
