Thanks to mikecharley for this one!
Black liquid with dark brown accents. Two+ finger head of thick, creamy dark chocolate brown foam. Good retention and great lacing.
Nice big caramel malts. Hints of dark and milk chocolate. Lots of dark fruit notes. Very 'roasty' with hints of coffee and smoke.
Big roasted malt flavor. Nice chocolate flavors, both sweet and dark. Slight coffee notes. Hints of smoke. Sweet caramel and dark fruit notes. Some toasted nuttiness. Very light spiciness on the end. (Is that from hops?) Very smooth and well blended flavors.
Sadly, I find this to be slightly too thin. Should be a little creamier and more full. Just a touch too waterey.
The 10% ABV is very well hidden, making this a very drinkable brew. Very smooth and tasty. Nice level of richness in flavor, but not overly so.
I want to buy this by the case.
