Coal black, deep midnight black. Yeahhhhh.... Good finger worth mocha brown head. Silky. Eventually settles down to a thin veneer over the lid, lacing wonderfully.

Dear god... Rich chocolatey malts and nutmeg and some cinnamon... Sweet meaty pumpkin... and some creamy latte milk and coffee notes. Man this smells good.

Taste is more bitter than the nose would suggest. There's a vegetal character to it, as well as a bakers chocolate/faint coffee bitter. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, and something on the tip I can't quite put my finger on...
Somewhere torn between smoothe and silky and quite dry. Thick, though, which I love.

Overall I really liked it, but my expectations from the fantastic pour and aroma were somewhat tempered by a flavour profile full of positive components that just doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts.
