A: Pours with an attractive brown head which fades quickly. Beer is dark and opaque.

S: Smells of roasted barley and caramel. Inviting aroma.

T: Well bodied flavor that is easy to enjoy. This beer is very smooth without unnecessary sweetness. An initial tart impression is followed by a mellow flavor which lingers slightly.

M: A sense of biting into a savory baked good precedes a soft finish.

O: This beer is now easily one of my favorites. The 8% Abv is a perfect balance of drinkability and strength.

Appearance: Black. Coca Cola. Mocha head. Decent lace.
Smell: Malt, chocolate, and light caramel.
Taste: Chocolate. Sweet. Barely noticeable alcoholic aftertaste (maybe a bit of plum).

I had a tough time figuring this one out. It's very good, but I don't know why with regard to the particulars. There's a malty smell for sure, but then I can't really place the taste. It's a bit like caramel, or something similar in sweetness. The alcohol is very well hidden. This is great...and I don't know why. I would get it again.
