22oz. Pours black with a tall, pillowy tan head that holds decent retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas are roasted malts and coffee, with some dark chocolate hints. Mouth-feel is medium bodied and coats the palate well. Tastes are similar to aromas - very roasted and robust - bittersweet chocolate, black coffee, and molasses. Also some mild ripened dark fruity esters, but nothing overwhelming. Alcohol is completely concealed. It's somewhat sweet, but finishes nicely balanced with the roasted malts providing some bitterness with the hops. Overall, solid recommendation for the style. It's nothing outrageous, but very satisfying.
