3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very deep red, almost brown. Head is non-existent. Notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and perhaps a little rum in the nose. I’m tasting a little roast that I did not pick up on in the nose. Also, this beer is not as sweet as I thought it was going to be. Ample carbonation. Actually, I’m now getting a lot of roast as it warms. This is much better than I thought it was going to be.

9/21/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour, some ruby under the light, with a small tan head that fades fast and doesn’t lace at all. Big fruity aroma with dark fruits, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart fruits, roast, and earthiness. Not bad!
