Dark pour, fruity-ashy aroma. Lots of sweetness behind the heavy bitter roast which finishes with a touch of lacticness. Okay.

Draft at the Moon River Brew Pub, poured adark brown with a tan head that quickly left the scene, roasted malt aroma, watery mouyth feel, metallic alcohol on the finish, with very light carbonation, expected a better beer than this when it arrived at the table. Looks better than it tastes.
