Pours a super deep black color with a dark brown, rich head. The head sticks around for a good while. Some ruby and brown comes through the edges. The smell is of coffee, licorice roasty, bready notes, and bitter chocolate. Some hop aroma comes through the nose as well, which is nice. The taste is similar to the nose. Lots of bitterness from both hops and roasted malts. The beer has a nice layering of burnt, roasted, and toasted malts. The mouthfeel is full but possibly on the lighter side for a 10% beer, which, in my opinion, is awesome. Excellent beer.
