Poured into a pint glass.
Very dark black in color. Poured with about 1/4" dark brown/burgundy head that dissipates quickly.
Mix of roasted and chocolate malt with a hint of sweetness.
Quite a mix/burst of varying flavors from beginning to end. Feels a bit tingly at first then a strong taste of the bittering hops and chocolate malt ended by a hint of roasted malt. Balance is toward the hops and the unsweetened chocolate.
Feels light/medium in body with semi-high carbonation but is incredibly smooth.
This beer is fairly easy to consume and the robust flavors that come out between the chocolate/hops/malts is quite stunning at first. I would drink another.
