12oz bottle poured into chalice. Deep opaque brown with minimal tan head. Think I was too gentle with the pour. Aromas are chocolate, coffee, roasty, woody, bordering on burnt. A light sweetness comes late after a medium strong coffee bitterness. Acrid and astringent flavors are hard to overcome though they mellow as the beer reaches room temp. Medium body, yet a thin velvety feel. Soft cola-like carbonation.
