A Christmas gift from buddy Alex. A full bodied stout that is appropriately acrid at start and mellows to full rounded roastyness by finish. Dark and silky in the Steigl mug I also received at Christmas from sister in law Sue... Hi Sue. Thick burnt umber head. A thoroughly enjoyable beer.

It pours black with a brown head. The head last s good while and leaves plenty of lacing. There are aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, some dark fruits, with hints of hops. It has flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, hoppy flavors that are most like herbs, and coffee. It is medium bodied with a bitter punch to the palate. It has a good amount of carbonation and is moderately bitter.
