Pours a dark brown/near black with a 2 finger tan head that quickly recedes, while leaving some pretty decent sticky lacing;.
Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate with a whiff of vanilla.or caramel.
Very dry, the barest hint of sweetness. Flavor of burnt malt/coffee. The light sweetness and the bitter burnt malt give a hint of dark chocolate. Smoky.
Seemed rather thin at first, but the feel improved . Call it medium thick. Somewhat frothy in carbonation, pleasant. Lightly warming.
Aroma was strong upfront, but the taste and mouthfeel seemed a bit weak the first few swallows. Thankfully, the beer settled down and became quite pleasing to drink. I had to knock a couple of categories up a notch. Definitely worth trying again.
