Served into an oversized wineglass.

It poured with a fairly thick and dense, mellow tan head. It's a very dark brown that when held up to a light, allows none through it. It's of roasted malts, faint coffee, and vanilla. It tasted of these malts and a little vanilla, chocolate and strongly of molasses. Fair carbonation leads to an alright, creamy mouthfeel. It's a very smooth, drinkable beer that's one of my favorites.
