12oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Aromas of light roast coffee, salted cured meat, grill smoke, soy sauce and a bit of pear and apricot. Pours a bloody red to oily black color with less than a finger of pristine ivory head that burns off in just a couple of minutes, with very little effervescence on the glass. Flavor is light roast coffee and semisweet chocolate up front followed by salty seawater and light fruit juice. Finish is long and lightly sweet but not cloying. Thin body for a beer of this color and classification. Really has the color and flavor profile I would consider more in line with Irish Red beer. Light carbonation and makes the mouth water generously after each sip. An interesting, unusual, unpretentious and quality brew, as all Big Sky’s stuff seems to be. The salty, fruity qualities are one of a kind. I’m not sure I’m head over heels in love with the approach, but it’s a nice alternative to the roasty and astringent status quo. Having a great time with it. Well done. bpreo (2840) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2016

12 oz single bottle from Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Almost black in appearance with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, light coffee and light chocolate.
