ffbot (418) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 31, 2016
On tap pour is a still dark obsidian with a ring of brown. Smell is leather licorice and boozed up fruit with dark chocolate. Taste is bitter boozy fruit without too much sweetness and a nice salty tang to it like oranges maybe. Long drying smoky palate

22oz bomber pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a full tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, chocolate, a bit of winter spices and pumpkin. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, winter spiced malt balls and some chocolate. It develops sweet malts here and there as the spices and pumpkin bubble up to the surface.

Courtesy of daknole. Growler at the Black Friday Tasting pours mahogany with mocha like head. The aroma has lots of pumpkin to go along with black strap molasses, dark roasted malts and a touch of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste is smooth with pumpkin meat notes mixing with spicy black licorice and molasses as well as dark roasted malts and snippets of sweet prunes and dates off in the background. This is tasting mighty good.
