COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late Fall into winter seasonal. More malt, more malt, more malt. Dark malt and the fact that light can't pass through gave this beer its name. Hearty in flavor, great in taste.

Pours a dark black body, big fluffy beige head. Touch of sourness hops and dark malt in the aroma. Roasty, slightly dry astringent (?) sour bitterness and some malt. Average palate, touch light. Growler @ Toronto Christmas Party 2004.

draft: dark black, frothy white head, aroma of malts, taste is sour, malty with a thin body, dont care for the lingering sourness from this one...edit: after reading the other ratings here I wonder if I was given the wrong beer or if there was a problem with the keg I was drinking from...
