Black and flat looking, but that's okay. No head no lacing. Aroma is a blend of red wine, roasted malts, chocolate and some light barrel notes. Flavor is more of the same: lightly acidic red wine, dark roasted malts,chocolate. Mildly sweet, balanced by the winey acidity. Full bodied. Lower carbonation.
