Pours black/deep brown with a light colored coffee head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of sweet caramel, nuttiness, a bit of dark fruit, nice for the style. Flavor follows. Good nuttiness to start to go along with a milky caramel sweetness. Hints of creamy coco before a dark fruit finish with a light touch of crisp hops as well. Top notch in the style. Smooth and dry mouthfeel.

Pours a deep but clear brown color with a fluffy tan head. Smells heavily of caramel with touches of licorice, chocolate and a faint hint of charcoal.

Thick creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation. The big body holds together nicely as it rolls along the tongue. Deep complex flavors of chocolate, roasted and burnt malts,

touches of coffee and caramel. Slightly phenolic hops light up the back of the tongue cutting any possible cloying sweetness. Awesome super awesome and deep complex brew that
rewards and brings something new to the table with each sip.
