Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.
A: Very dark brown, or black. Pours about a 1 finger, foamy, whit-ish head. Craters unevenly, and fairly quickly, leaving a bit of a foamy blanket and a ring. Sporadic lacing.
S: Roasted espresso malt, nuts, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
T: Hearty roasted coffee. Nutty, with a little fall spice.
M: Full and robust. Lightly bitter finish.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Great hue, really nice head, and fair lacing. Nose is roasted nuts and coffee with plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like it smells...only not sweet (which is a good thing). Char roasted malt, nuts, and fall spice. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
