12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with a little light getting through; small tan head that fades leaving nice lacing and retention. The aromas are pretty malty. Lots of cocoa and some hints of vanilla. Some hazelnut. Some graham cracker in the mix too. The flavors have a solid bitterness going on. More chocolate. Slightly roasty. Hints of expresso. Pretty earthy. Somehow, it remains clean and refreshing. It finishes dry. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It's thin with very active carbonation. It's pretty smooth and easy to drink.
This is a nice example of the style. It's also a nice versatile beer to cook with.
