650 ml bottle. 2011 release. Pours a dark black with a small tan chocolate head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasty with dark, bitter chocolate. It has a bit of a floral hop presence as well. A bit of alcohol as well. The initial taste has some bitter chocolate, then comes a bit of coffee roastiness and a bit of hops. There is also some dark fruits, plum, and a hint of cherry. The finish has a decent bitterness to it and a hint of alcohol, but not nearly as much as in the nose. Medium bodied with a bit of creaminess. Low-medium carbonation. Great beer, especially when you consider the price.
