Brown chestnut color, nice off-white head with good lacing. Aroma of caramel and hop. Caramel , tropical fruits and hoppy bitterness in taste. Full body , low carbonation. Strong bitterness in very long aftertaste

750 ml bottle dated 2013 poured in a chalice glass. The bottle was wax sealed with a thick plastic coating. The beer pours nearly jet black with a thin head that clings heavily to the glass. The smell is of roasted malt. The taste is heavy, with toffee and cocoa notes that dominate the palette. The aftertaste is earthy and bitter, like a stout. The bottle says there are citrus notes but I was hard-pressed to find them, although there were slight traces. It's not what I look for in a dark ale anyway. Overall, excellent brew that goes well with a grilled steak.
