12 oz bottle packaged 1/5/16. Tasted 2/22/16 at about 45F.

Great dense head leaves lacing during tasting. A mild aroma.

Taste and mouthfeel are nice, a little less full bodied than anticipated. The aftertaste of roasted malt and hops lingers, and is very pleasant.

Pours thick and opaque black with a thin and creamy tan head. There is a light aroma of roasted malt but the boldness of the beer is in the drink. Smooth coffee flavors and a gentle hint of chocolate flow with a mildly thick and viscous brew. Low carbonation slows the drink even more and fades gracefully into a sweet malty finish. It ends smoothly and crisply.
