Deep brown, good initial head that gradually fades.

Roasty notes in the nose.

Classic porter/stout notes: roasted malt, caramel, cola, chocolate, oatmeal.

Medium thick mouthfeel, goes down easy.

This was well balanced and tasty. Doesn't fit the mold of the typical hoppy black IPA but I'm very impressed with the first I've had from Bent Paddle.
