spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Madison Ar: Not as rich of a roast as I was expecting on this one. A bit of coffee, but more of a medium roast aroma than a dark roast aroma. Ap: Pours a deep brown-black with a 3/4" pillowy light cinnamon head. Very nice lace as well. T: Medium malt sweetness up front, again with a medium roast flavor. Significant hop bitterness on the finish. P: A bit over-carbonated for my preference, medium body. O: This is decent, but not anything special.

Very pleasant caramel and chocolate aroma. Pours a very dark black with a minimal amount of carbonation and slight brown head that quickly dissipates. Has a dry and subtle alcohol taste with some wood and cherry overtones. Creamy and full bodied with a long slightly bitter finish.
