  • It is a chilly evening tonight and a dark strong beer sounded good.

    Pours a pitch black color with a dark tan quarter inch head. Good retention with lots of thick spotty lacing.

    Aroma is a nice mix of strong dark scents. I am getting roasted malts, a bit of coco, and dark coffee.

    Taste is very similar to the aroma, but wow this beer packs a major bitter punch up front! Dark roasted malts that work into a strong coffee flavor with a hint of smoke. Bitterness is long lasting.

    Full bodied beer with light to medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth on the palate.

    I really like this beer. It is well balanced and has lots of bold flavors. A very enjoyable beer on a cold night! Try one!
