UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 On tap at Devon. Mostly opaque black with moderate foamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, oatmeal. A little bit sweet, low bitterness. Medium bodied, mostly smooth. Pairs well with food, but leaves a little to be desired on its own.

Tap at McKenzie for RBSG 2011. Pours a clear black ruby with a small, tan head. Scant lace. Looks pretty dark. Nose is light coffee and toast but fairly muted. Taste is sweet with tart acid mash and oatmeal grain. Overall fairly tart and prickly. Soapy and oily dichotomy in the finish. Intredasting.
