As black as it can be, not a chance of light to get through, with a one finger caramel head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Incredible predominant aroma of blue cheese and charred wood.
Interesting flavor of blue cheese, a bit of dark chocolate, spices, charred wood, smoke, finishes with charcoal, not quite peat, a bit of coffee, subdue citrusy and black currants.
Full body with low carbonation. Sticky feeling.
Great beer, very complex with unusual surprising notes. Recommendable.
