Sampled at Broad Ripple. The beer arrived a lighter shade of black (what). More along the lines of a Schwartz. The server said that this beer a stout beer, but after the nose and taste, not even close. A light off-white to almost tan color head but limited retention and lacing.

The nose is limited overall. Some lighter malt notes with a light hint of chocolate. Some bready and a light nutty thing that mixes oddly. Some yeast notes but mostly clean. Some esters, a light plum and (don’t laugh) horseradish. Some minor wood pulp and alcohol but for the most part clean.

The taste is a bit more descript. The malt come out a bit more with come caramel and light chocolate. Some roast notes and a touch of vanilla as well. Finishes a bit dry, would like to see some lingering sweetness. There is a light molasses taste in the finish as well. The yeast is light as well. Some generic yeast notes and a light ester. Would have liked more depth for BDS.

The body is limited. A bit wispy and limited in the finish. The carbonation is limited as well. Overall a beer that doesn’t quite fit style, but overall would like a bit more depth.

Got this one as an extra in a recent trade with SPLITGRIN, thanks buddy!

Pours a cola color with a fizzy inch of foam that quickly dies down to a ring.

A bit of a sour aroma with notes of vanilla, cola, wood, and a bit of dark fruits. A bit of alcohol too. Not the greatest smell I would have to say, doesn’t really make my mouthwater. There’s also some caramel and toast.

Fizzy taste, thin, some toast, faint dry fruits, and a bit of alcohol. Kind of stale in the finish. Not much to speak of really. Mostly carbonation in the finish, is that even possible?

Very thin mouthfeel, feels overcarbonated but I think it’s just the lack of flavor.

Just didn’t do it for me.
