Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly smokey roasted malt aroma with a decent amount of sweetness for balance. Pretty robust with hints of coffee bean, burnt toast, oatmeal and dark chocolate countered by caramel, toffee and rich fudge-y bakers chocolate. There's definitely a a sweet dessert like quality that counters the heavier elements.
Full bodied with a deeply roasted, robust dark malt flavor that's countered by lighter malt sweetness and faint earthy hop bitterness. Pretty dry and almost burnt tasting up front without becoming acrid or overwhelming. Hints of burnt toast, roasted gourmet coffee, dark chocolate and of course oatmeal followed by toffee, chocolate cake and resinous hops. Lots of dry bitterness yet this big beer remains well balanced and pretty easy to drink considering it's complexity.
