Pours an extremely dark brown with little light getting in and even less getting back out. Even with a mild pour in a pint glass I got 2" of dark tan head. Settles a bit faster than I would have expected. Good lace, though.
Smell is roasted malt, cardboard, light smoke and cocoa. Well balanced.
Taste is roasted malt, toast, light smoke, coffee, light cocoa, light cardboard. Very well balanced, good complexity.
Fairly full bodied with a light but slightly sharp effervescence. Gently warming and slightly drying. Some coating on the back of the throat. A nice brew.
