Pours a bronzey brown colour, quite a few floaties in my glass. Head is enormous, but lovely. Bit too big, but good.
Smells like coffee upfront but it gives way to strong grainy-sweet: smells like a grain bag, touch of caramel, carob and a wet wool note. Crystal grain, mostly. Not bad.
Taste is more roasty. Has a nice dark caramel upfront that develops peppery espresso roast, then more chocolatey on the back, slight hint of vegemite but nice bittersweet cocoa finish. Quite simple, but very pleasant, subtle drinking.
Bit sizzly and dry. Could use a lot more body.
A bit hit and miss, but the taste (most important) is nice and smooth and well-balanced. That's what counts.
