Big light brown head covers a clear reddish dark brown beer.

Dark bakers chocolate malt aroma with some slight coffee notes coming through.

The taste is exactly like the aroma with a big dark chocolate bite that doesn't overwhelm and carries with it a hint of some sort of coffee that seems to balance the taste quite well for me.

Leaves a slightly dryish aftertaste with some nicely roasted chocolate malts tastes sticking around with this medium to full bodied beer.

m'm good
