Pours coal black with a hint of a light tan head and a bit o' lace for interest. Smells a little like burnt toast but not that acidic. Taste is biscuity malt up front, followed by a sharp, almost burnt roast and then a crisp finish. I can see this going well with a sweet-ish meat dish. Mouthfeel is soft and pleasantly carbonated. Drinkability is good but a bit too roasted for me to settle in for the evening with this one. A good, approachable version of the style, it maintains more biscuit than burnt and that maintains my interest.
