Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this handbottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very faint with some darker malts. The flavor is heavily roasted malts with some coffee and is quite bitter. Thin-medium, slightly watery mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Growler from Josh and Tim. Poured a dark black color with thick frothy head. Aroma was lots of raisins, mike chocolate and roast coffee. Taste was sweet and milky with dark over ripe fruits. Pallet was on the lower to medium spectrum and a bit thin. Overall I really enjoyed this though.
