Poured from a 650 ml bottle into footed tulip.
A: Black. Pours a 1+ finger, foamy, brown white head. Settles fairly quickly, leaving a thick beer ring as it does. Persistent sparse lacing.
S: Roasted coffee, oak chips, dark chocolate, butterscotch, and a very little black licorice.
T: Pungent malt grains. Oaky coffee and malt and a little peat.
M: Full, thick, and hearty. Lightly bitter finish. A bit shallow.
D: Sip and savor.
Atmosphere is pretty strong. Dark and intimidating. Foamy head, and some decent persistent lacing. Nose is distinct combination of coffee, oak, chocolate, butterscotch, and licorice. Well-balanced combination. Pungent malt grains, with some wood and peat. Hearty, with a bitter finish. Overall, this is a good quaff.
