Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle at home with Friends. Pour is Deep brown almost black with a big brown head and good lacing. Grapey, roasty, dark fruity, caramelly, toffee, licorice, plummy, and figgy aroma. Taste is much roastier, tangy, red grapes, dark fruits, cocoa, light coffee, and earthy with a roasty tart finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty interesting and not hard to drink at all.
