Poured from bottle into the center of an Imperial pint glass. Fairly aggressive pour develops only about an inch of reddish brown head, that recedes quickly. Ink black in color.

The nose picks up chocolate, coffee and vanilla along with dark fruits. Just a faint hint of soy sauce.

I take a sip and think wow. Just a fantastic beer.

This beer couldn't feel any better.

Overall I love this beer. Can only imagine what the barrel aged version would be like.
