Dark brown, almost black with just a little light showing through. Off white to tan head that's nice and creamy and lingers throughout the glass and leaves heavy lacing.
Sweet and roasty, pretty subtle. Picking up some chocolate and a touch of coffee. Very pleasant, but would like a little more.
Very much like the nose, a super well balance between the sweet and the roasty - nothing takes over and nothing lingers. Tasty dark chocolate, the usual lactose sweetness and just a touch of roast. Very very nice.
Fairly heavy, semi light carbonation, very creamy and smooth. A dessert, yet refreshing at the same time.
Very impressed by this one. The balance is perfect - not too sweet, not too heavy, just a great example of the style.
