Pours black with a thin brown head.
Smells sweetly of roasted malts, a bit of roasted coffee beans, and a hint of raisin.
Upfront the taste is strongly sweet with a molasses/brown sugar flavor. There's a little dark chocolate bitterness at the end that lingers for a bit, but the rich taste upfront really dominates.
The mouthfeel is very smooth, yet thick and chewy. It's carbonated enough to feel lively on your taste buds without being overly bubbly.
Although the flavor is very rich, drinkability is great. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these this winter.
