Pours brown with a tanned head with lacing. Sweet dark aroma of some malts, hints of coffee and chocolate. Medium mouth, Decent aroma, and perfect body and level of aroma for when a stout/porter is just too heavy.

Backlog rating 3-01-2009. (Bottle) This beer poured a medium sized tan fizzy head with good retention, visible carbonation, transparent body, fair amount of lacing, and a reddish-brown hue. The Aroma is malty, nutty, hoppy, and chocolate. The Taste consists of malt, nutty, hoppy, chocolate, and smokey. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, worthy of a try and a beer that I would consider drinking again.
