Poured from a bomber into a tumbler pint, the beer is a ruby-tinted, oak-brown coloring with a filmy, yellowish coating on the surface. Aromas of hazelnut and mocha, with a roasty sweet overall scent. Flavors are rich and roasted, with a slight char underlying backbone. Toffee sweetness highlights the mocha and hazelnut that was present on the nose, with a slight bitterness to the coffee-like flavors. Light, inconsistent lacing along the glass while you drink. The aftertaste is rich, roasted, and slightly bitter. The finish is smooth, but light enough to not be overpowering. The bitterness cleans the palate up a bit to allow for easy enough drinking, despite the increased ABV.
