This classic brew pours a pitch black color, and is topped with a tall, creamy froth. Near perfect appearance for the style. The aroma is sublime... cereal grains are intermingled with sweet chocolate and some light fruit esters (green apple & pear). Fortunately, the flavor is just as fantastic. Along with the aforementioned aspects, we also get some molasses, raisin and a trace of crisp bitter hops. The finish is quite earthy & roasty, with a light mouth feel. Thoroughly enjoyable and complex.
