This is a genre I have been wanting to get into for awhile. Heard so many great things I couldn't resist no longer.
Pours a beautiful dark black colour with tan creamy head. Laces very well.
Smells of roasted caramel malt, and a hint of fruit.
Tastes very smooth, with strong espresso or coffee flavour and chocolate, that gradually gives way to a more tangy hoppiness.
The alcohol is masked well by the ingrediants and only shows it's head slightly. The roasted coffee flavour stays with you as you drink.
Very smooth and very flavourful.
