A: Solid black body. Slightly beige head which dissipates quickly.

S: Not much of a nose but some smokey fudge and caramel.

T: Thick and full of fizz. Smokiness and earth, just on the right side of dry. No chocolate and in fact no malt character at all but there is some caramel in the aftertaste. Sharp and assertive but lacking backbone. Not as hoppy as I was expecting.

O: Totally lacking in malt character and one dimensional but still quite drinkable.
