Bottle. It pours a dense, almost creamy, tan head of two-finger size. Both lasting and lacings producing. Not black in color, but pretty close. The aroma is on the dark side, as expected, with roasted malts, mocha, milk chocolate and some alcohol notes and a pleasant piney, citrus peel-like hoppyness. Mellow and pleasant. Really pleasant actually, even though I’m not in the mood for dark, heavy ales for the moment. The flavor continues what the aroma started, it’s oily and smooth on the palate, although a bit warming. Soft carbonation, and towards the end the bitterness adds another dimension to the flavor. As mentioned, I’m not in the mood to drink on the dark side these days, but I certainly enjoyed it anyway. 120322

Dark brown color, steady creamy brown head. There is rye in the aroma, some toasted notes and light sweet chocolate. Medium-bodied and soft palate. Cocoa, milkyness, some rye and light alcoholic bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant.
