Pours a translucent black with a light brown, slightly white head. Smell is very sweet. Chocolate, grapes, roasted malt. The flavor is nice. Very roasty. Nice, creamy mouthfeel.

Pours almost pitch black with an outstanding head, lacing and retention. Subtle nose of dark fruit (plum, raisin) with light notes of roast and chocolate as it warms. Light bodied with little texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back. It consists of a blend of light roast and chocolate with a distinct mineral note. If you look for it, you can find the oat character. The finish has a slight metallic twang to it. I suspect this bottle may be old, since what I'm tasting is nothing like the other reviews here. If you don't bother to bottle date, then the reviewer can't take age into consideration.
