Blac, with no head, which is kind of a warning sign. Smells like burnt coffee, and a little ashy. Flavor is more scorched coffee and toasty. Thin bodied. decaturstevo (6339) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2006
A dark almost black pour with an off white head that stays forever. A toasted malt flavor. A nice taste that starts sweet and goes dry qucikly. A light bitter finish.A decent mouthfeel but just a tad watery with very good carbonatioin that makes for a smooth palate. Not a bad brewpub beer.
