On tap at Societe, pours near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out roasted malt, toasted notes, and piney hops. Flavour brings out a good balance of roast and piney hops - extremely well-crafted and without any harshness. Excellent stuff.

Sample at the tasting room. This brew is a deep brown color with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted malt, hops and chocolate. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, toasted malt and cocoa. The finish is malty up front with a resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
