Poured out of a can into an oversized brandy snifter. It's maybe a shade or two below jet black with a light brown head (like the color of a paper grocery bag). Not a significant amount of head retention, but I wasn't expecting that. It forms a head around the sides of the glass and is barely there in the middle save for a few bubbles.

I'm a home brewer, and the aroma is exactly what I get when I come home from the homebrew store and stick my nose in a bag of freshly milled malted barley. Flavor is very roasty and complex with chocolate, coffee, and residual sweetness from the malt. The alcohol is definitely perceptible and is pleasantly warming. Some lacing on the glass (if I were talking about cloud coverage outside I would call it scattered). The hops is there, but enough to balance the amount of malt. It's hard to tell if the bitterness is roasted barley, an alcohol bite, or the hops itself. In any case the balance is more towards the malt.

This beer is exceptional.
