Thanks to Lerxst for the trade!
Pours thick black with just the slightest hint of amber highlights. Thin rich brown head emerges slowly then quickly recedes.
Smell is rich dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookies. Coffee and roasted malts.
Surprisingly fruity flavor initially. Similar to dark chocolate covered raspberries. Roasted malts and coffee. Finishes with raspberry chocolates and bitter dark roasted coffee. As it warms, the dark chocolate and coffee take over and the raspberries fade.
Mouthfeel is medium in body. Carbonation accents fruity flavors. Oats provide slickness if still slightly on the thin side.
I might not consider this "refreshing" on this warm spring afternoon, but little alcohol is noticeable except with big whiffs. A joy to drink.
