Draught, 7%. Weak roasted aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is roasted with some alcohol sourness. Not so malty or sweet. Vinous finish.

bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very dark brown with a slight light tan head. I can get garnet, if I hold it against a strong light. Smells a little bit of wet dog (not kidding) and raisiny dark fruit. 2nd inhale elimd the dog. 3rd inhale suggests chocolate. Full bodied. Dark roast malt, and some chocolate/raisin. This one’s good for watchin a movie. It’s fairly well balanced, but tilting towards bitter. Nice ale. Been hoping for this one for several years.
