Pours almost completely black except for an eggplant purple hue . It's not that there's any light coming though even on the edges. It's that purplish hue that tells me this is the darkest brown and not black. Bitter chocolate on the nose and a creaminess. Roasted malt that has been blackened to a succulence. It boasts of the fruit it might have if left to blacken further. But there is no fruit. There is a sweet bit of caramel under that chocolate and a faint hint at smoke. taste is wonderful and follows the nose all the way. Dry bitter chocolate and some weak coffee. Crisp malt that is a touch bitter. Nutty too but not sweet. It has a creamy soft mouthfeel that feels thin and easy to the palate but is really medium. Finishes dry and hearty with plenty of complexity. The fruitiness form malt sneaks in as the beer warms and it is dry raisin.

This is terrific!
