12oz bottle with a Best Before date of 16DEC12. Pours a black color with dark brown hues and a thin tan head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is nutty chocolate with some malts and earth. Some hazelnut coffee as well. Taste is more of the chocolate nuttiness but with a bit more coffee flavor than the aroma. Malty finish. Creamy mouthfeel. This is a perfect beer for crisp Autumn nights. Overall, worth grabbing again.
