Interesting. The aroma is malty with a umami flavor. The beer is black with fading tan head. The taste is soy with malt. The body is smooth but has an oddness to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle split. Unfiltered deep amber-black color. Frothy, respectable head. Oily, resinous, dry, chocolate aroma, bitter. Medium bodied, quite drinkable. A touch of cherry, amber malt shines through. Pretty straightforward, but misses the mark a little. Unimpressive in it’s thin mouthfeel and the odd sour cherry tones. Still OK.
