Poured into a pint glass. The beer pours dark brown to black with less than a finger length of very light tan head. Some light is visible at the bottom of the glass and it is ruby copper in color. I can also make out some rising tiny bubbles in the beer. The beer smells of bready malt, toffee, and dark chocolate. There's also a touch of earthiness in the aroma. The beer is nice and chocolately with some mild toffee to add some sweetness. I also get some of that malt breadiness and some earthiness. There's some roastiness as well some lingering back end bitterness. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is creamy. This is a very good beer. It would pair nicely with a good meal or work as an after dinner drink.
