Color is black with a creamy beige head. Nice body to this beer with a bit of a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Aromas of chocolate malts and roasty coffee/espresso. All of that very much carries through to the palate with a subtle hop bitterness and a clean finish. It looks like a big beer but drinks closer to a session beer. Great flavor and an all around great beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

355ml bottle into nonic pint. best before "8 2016". consumed october 27, 2014

a: a nice deep brown coming out of the bottle, then builds up into a very black body. brown hues at the bottom. a nice and fluffy two fingers of coffee-looking head

s: caramel, roasted malts, and raisins up front. chocolatey coffee follows

t: much like the nose -- sweet and tasty dark ale flavours (toasted bread, caramel, raisins, chocolate, coffee), with floral hop notes and smoky, woody bitterness accents around mid-to-late palate

m: light body and mild carbonation work together to give a easy-going but creamy mouthfeel

o: light and sessionable but full of flavour
