Bottle poured into nonic. Finger of tan head settles to a cap on top of near black opaque liquid. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, mocha, burnt toast. Taste is all kinds of roasty/burnt malt bitterness, a little cocoa sweetness, a touch of late hoppy bitterness and maybe some veggies and dark fruit sweetness. On the low end of full bodied, slick and creamy texture, low carbonation, abrupt bitter finish.

One of the best beers I have ever had. It is also one of the most richest in aroma and flavor. Dark Roasted coffee is present in the smell and taste. It does possess that nice earthy flavor that is present in most fine single malt Scotch whisky. There is minor hop presence.
