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.

Pours black with thin mild tan head. Nose is of chocolate and sweet malt. Flavor is velvety smooth, oily and rich, coffeish and dark chocolate. Vibrant hop bitterness lingers in the finish.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2005
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.

Has an interesting roasted plum aroma that is fairly unusual. The sweetness and alcohol are pretty apparent.
