Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a deep black with a thin beige head. Nose is malty, roasted malty. First sip, wow! A flavor explosion. Lots of sweetness, and roasted malts. Dark fruits, rasberry. A bit sweet overall, with quite a bit of warmth. Nicely flavored and very drinkable,especially after a few others. A better closer than opener.

Draught at Blind Tiger. Very dark brown, basically black, with nice medium off white head. Aroma is raisin/dark dried fruit, artificial purple (not bad), big sweet malt backbone that hints at chocolate. Taste is sweet boozy dried fruit, light chocolate, somethings off though. Too boozy sweet for me, good though. Better warm.
