Bottle. Almost black with ruby tints when held to the light, fairly ordinary light tan head even when poured hard, although plenty of lacing was left behind as the bottom of the glass approached. Aroma somewhat disappointing, slight hint of roasted malt with a little milkiness which improves slightly as it warms. Taste is somewhat better, very mildly bitter dark chocolate and espresso with a slightly dry and warming finish. Mouth is watery; not what it could be I suspect. Sounds a bit like I am down on this one, but it is quite drinkable. Guess it could be summed up with "good effort, could do better".
