Served in a St. Feuillien glass (short, wide mouthed winelike glass) at fridge temps

Appearance: Thick and very dark brown with a thin light tan head that goes away after a few seconds. No light gets through this one.

Nose: roasted malts, chocolate, burnt cream, dark roast coffee, oak, slight vanilla

Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, surprisingly thin mouthfeel and light body for such a rich smelling beer. Short finish with very slight hop bitterness at the end that lingers a few seconds refreshing the palate.
