Pours a black color with a slightly off white/light mocha head.

Smell is dominate of roasted malt. Slight chocolate. Not too much else. Maybe some slight spice.

Taste is big on roasted malt. Slight chocolate malt flavor that hits mid-palate. Finishes nice and clean.

Mouthfeel is light.

Dark reddish brown pour. Nice malty smell. Has a very light crispy roasted malt taste, but still has a lot of flavor. Can also taste some caramel and plum.
