Pours almost black. A thick light brown head develops and settles to a thin topping that laces the glass.

A rich chocolatey nose with some light roastiness.

Medium body and hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. The inviting malts in the aroma come through in the taste delivering the chocolate and coffee roastiness.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance was a deep dark brown with a scarlet reflection and exceptional clarity. A dark tan head had good retention and laced the glass to the end. Nicely bottle conditioned with great carbonation. Aromas of roasted malt weren't as present on nose as it was in the flavor to come. First taste immediately releases coffee notes with a hint of chocolate and a bitterness (maybe from some Black Patent malt) that stays on the back side of the tongue for 15 to 30 seconds. Hop presence is slight but seems to be of the noble variety and contribute to the moderate bitterness. An excellent example of the style and one I will revisit again. REALLY WELL DONE.
