Pours very black just about opaque. Nose full of burnt malts, an almost smoked beef quality, tobacco smoke, a little boozy chocolate. Very smooth feel with the same smokey burnt qualities on the palate. Big, full, rich and creamy going down. Very drinkable. A hint of chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste, but mostly sticks to its burnt ashy characteristics. A big beer that isn't zealously brewed to acheive astronomic abv levels, yet packs the complexity and feel of some of the biggest double stouts. Had this pretty warm, probably mid to high 50's. Corked some and drank it later much colder, a lot more chocolate on the palate
