Bottle thanks to Kurt and Erin! Pours a very dark brown with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of dark grains and light roast with a slight astringency. Flavor is different with a bit more of a sweet dark grain note, some toffee and a light biscuit note.

Draft - Dark fruit, raisin and chocolate. Deep maroon with a decent light brown head. Taste of raisin and cocoa with a nice sweetness. Not bad for a mild, although a touch on the rich side and abv is a bit high.
