This beer has a black as night body with a thick tan head.
Aroma has a roasted malt and chocolate notes coming from it.
The taste has a complex array of flavors, roasted malt, chocolate, carmel, dark fruit. Every sip I get a little more.
mouthfeel is smooth and this one is very enjoyable.

750ml corked bottle. A deep black with a large lasting broun head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, caramel, cacao and hints of coffee and dark fruit essence fill the senses. Taste is of dark roasted caramel malt with cacao and coffee flavors and some dark fruit and mild licorice undertones, a mild roasted bitterness. Palate is a smooth medium body with good carbonation. The finish is an unmistakable roasted dark malt, caramel, cacao and mild coffee, a bit of licorice with a mild roasted malt bitterness on the end for balance. Overall a good enjoyable brew to sit down and relax with, not to aggressive and nicely balance. I like.
