Almost black with a tan frothy head with okay retention and good lacing. A nice floral and nutty aroma. A bite of dark chocolate to begin with the leads to a toasted hazelnut flavor with a bitter hop finish. Great balance never is overtaken by sweetness or bitterness. A smooth yet almost effervescent feel with a dry finish.
Oh boy, I could certainly imagine knocking back a few of these in a dark pub four and a half centuries ago... or right now.
