A- Dark amber black, with ruby tints. Small creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates.
A- Bready malt aroma. Chocolate and coffee malts, but not too aggressive.
T- Sweet malt with slight coffee and chocolate flavors. Perhaps a touch of biscuit malt. It's sweet, but still manages to finish dry with a very slight bitterness.
M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Quite creamy and smooth. Slight alcohol warmth.
D- This is a very pleasant beer to drink, in some ways it reminds me of Black Lager. Not exactly a session beer, but I'd enjoy having a few more.
