12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
A- Black as night. A half finger of dense mocha colored head. Nice lacing.
S- Espresso and sweet oats. Some very, very dark chocolate as well.
T- Sweetness certainly is not the point of this one. Dark roast, and charcoal is met with a quick flash of citric/floral hops which quickly lead to the big dose of coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate bitterness.
M- Smooth from the oats. Brash from the hops. I wish it would lean a bit towards the smoother side.
O- Very good. A good counterpoint to the overly sweet examples of the style.
