On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light fruity aroma. Body was a little thin. Light roastiness dark fruit and a little chocolate rondphoto (4465) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Opaque black with a thin light brown head and no lace. Fruit is noticeable in the aroma, and shows again in the taste - candied mincemeat and prunes and raisens. It nearly works, but falls short with an odd bitter overtone as it moves through the palate - seems like cough syrup with a bad aftertaste (plus no alcohol warmth). Seems like it ought to be better.

Poured on draft at the brewpub. Pours a pretty dark brown with a light khaki head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is faintly fruity, but dominated by roast and dark chocolate. The taste is heavily malty on the tongue with a soft acidity in the finish. Nice offering.
