Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours dark but slightly transparent held to the light with only a ring of tan foam for a head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, slight ash, and a bit of an underlying gum note which I do not care for. Taste is minimal roast, slight chocolate, light and generic sweet malt, and some more of the gum off-flavor. There is some rye spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is watery. I was really excited about this beer and it was a let down all the way around.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has light roasted malts, some light rye malts, a hint of sweetness, and light floral hops. Decent.

wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Tasted on 9/22/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown as a part of a Yazoo mixed 12 pack. Pours a nearly black dark brown with a thick light tan head that slowly recedes to thin, uneven lace. The nose is full of dark and creamy milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, and just a very light hint of spices that I associate with rye malt. The flavor is the same as the nose with the creamy milk chocolate, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, rye spices, along with just a hint of vanilla. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and light vanilla finish.

T: Char and coffee up front - malty and sweet with some deep caramel notes - light blueberry esters in the background - fairly low bitterness P: Medium-bodied and very silky and rich - finish is medium-dry.
