Poured from a uniquely shaped 12oz bottle into a standard pint.
Pours a deep, dark mahogany with a slightly tanned head. Head is about a finger high with average retention and some nice lacing as it goes. Nose is mostly roasty malts with some coffee notes. Taste is roasty malt again with some chocolate and fruit notes to round things out. Mouthfeel is a bit lighter than I expected; however, I think this speaks more to the impressive appearance than any deficit in mouthfeel. Drinkability is high, again not as cloying, sticky, or boozey as you would expect just looking at this.
