Bar glass from a bottle. Deep, rich chocolately brown our with a thick head (really a beauty to see) . Enjoyable and rich flavor, not complex, pretty straight-forward toffee and rye flavor.

3 bucks for a 750ml bottle.. you hear me 3 bills... that's all. An excellent beer for the price. It was good, but I didn't think as good as everyone else says... just great for the price.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark red-brown, nearly black. Nice rocky tan head. Aromas of sweet dark fruit, particularly prunes and raisins, chocolate, french-roast coffee beans, burnt straw, peat, toasted malt, alcohol, and bready yeast. Flavor was big, darkly roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, espresso, yeast and a big dose of hop bitterness. Aftertaste of burnt malt and lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick, viscuous and chewy. Suprisingly good.
