A: Very dark brown, no carbonation visible through it. Short and short-lived light tan head that leaves only a collar.

S: Roasted malt, chocolate, sweet toffee, light coffee.

T: Oats, chocolate, biscuit, a faint tanginess/acidity. A kind of earthiness permeates it all; maybe I'm just thinking of that ancient well. Dry and slight bitterness. Faint floral soap. Moderate chocolate finish.

M: Very nicely thick, a little oily, lively carbonation.

O: What a fantastic brew! Big flavor, big body, perfectly dry while still offering some typically sweet flavor, and a sessionable ABV. I feel like I took a step back into history.
