Pretty hard to put a finger on this one. It pours practically jet black, but with ruby highlights held to the light, like a stout. My other impression is schwarzbier, but the aroma is sweet, not smoky. The flavor is a confusion of molasses, plums, coffee, toffee, and malts. I don't mean to come off sounding like some smarmy beersnob type, but this beer's a little hard to explain. At the very least, it's interesting to try. If you see it, give it a spin, then come tell us what you think on the forums.
