Sweet roasted malt flavor with hints of peppery spice, dark fruits and some light alcohol coming through in the finish. Medium bodied that finishes slightly dry.

eaglefan538 (2843) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2011
On draft at the Wilmington location. The pour was pitch black, tan chocoloate colored head, good lacing all the way down. The aroma was chocolate, belgian yeast, phenolic, peppers. The flavor was black patent schwarz type malts, cocoa and bitter chocolate, dryness, phenolic and yeasty character in the finish. The mouthfeel was full and dry. An interesting combination, but I don’t think I liked it being this dark and roasty.... Less blackness would’ve been a good thing.
