    Pours black with a nice tan head that has great retention and lacing going on.
    Very roasted aroma with notes of dark chocolate and milder coffee. Alcohol and a very slight hop bitterness are noted as well.
    Very roasted malt taste up front with hardly any sweetness. Dark chocolate, coffee and burnt smoky maltiness with a touch of licorice. Bitter hops and alcohol warmth at the finish.
    Mouthfeel is creamy and somewhat slick with a lower amount of carbonation that fits very well. Balanced, balanced and balanced.
