22 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan frothy head that stayed around for a while. There's also a lot of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like coffee, dark fruit, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and a bit of vanilla. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like roasted/burnt malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee and some dark fruit. Even though there is some sweetness noticeable, it's mostly roasty and bitter tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and coating with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good overall brew, I'd try this again in the future.
