550 ml bottle.
Pours black with dark red edges and a thick, lingering tan head
Smell is pleasant, molasses and some coffee, but less obvious than some. A pleasant smell, but wasn't strong for me.
Taste is of dark malts, a vague oatmeal and chocolate background, and a lingering dry woody sweetness. Very balanced, a nice variety of roasted smoky flavors without going off too much in one direction. Quite pleasant, perhaps a bit understated in the beginning, but as it warms more flavorful with a longer-lasting bitter chocolate finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth, silky and creamy. Nice depth in beginning, seemed to thin out as beer warmed.
I'm quite impressed with this one.
