The beer pours dark black and ruby in color. There is a tall, thick, mostly creamy head of beige foam. The aroma is dark roasted malts, light char, a bit of dark fruits. The taste hits all the same notes as the aromas. The beer drinks round, smooth, and with a big tingle of carbonation. The finish is dry, lightly bitter, and with a mineral tang. This beer drinks great, but could use a bit more assertive flavor.
