Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells of chocolate and slight candy like caramel. Tastes of very rich chocolate with the taste of aging being present, nice balance. Beer is carbonated lightly, full bodied, definitely more of a sipper than a sessionable. Overall, an above average beer.
