Bottle. The pour was a coca-cola brown with some reddish highlights and an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige creamy head that diminished quickly down to just a thin film and a small foamy collar, which did create some excellent sheeting of lace.
The aroma was bold and roasty of a roasted caramel malt and a mild leathery yeast with notes of caramel, chocolate, a mild dark fruit and a bit of ash.
The taste was roasty, malty and mildly sweet with a hint of caramel from the start with the finish being about the same, but with a mild fruity presence and a touch of smoke at the end. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow with a nice smoky/fruity taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and a bit oily yet still rather creamy in texture with an almost prickly carbonation.
Overall very tasty and satisfying brew, one which had a nice bold roasty taste to it. Although I am not a big fan of this style, this one was quite enjoyable.

Dark and some chocolate with raw nuts. Not bad, difficult to find in my area, but if you cannot find it you are not missing out on much.

Bottle to glass. Clear copper-orange with moderate, retained head. Grainy and slightly metallic nose. Faint orange and a little sea weed. Taste starts as faint caramel but quickly falls apart in the second half. There is a dishwater aspect with General huskiness as though the mash was dialed way too high for style. Slight ash.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle a burnt copper with a satisfying slowly fading off-white head. Aroma is malty with a hint of clove. Mouth feel is medium, carbonation is medium, and flavor is sweet carmel, toffee, and smoky malt. A little on the sweeter side, but I have a sweet tooth so no problem there. Carmel slowly fades away to a touch of bitter hops. Very enjoyable beverage!
