22oz bottle into pint glass. Pours an almost pitch black color with amber/brown hues at the edge of the glass. Creamy light almond colored one finger head.

Nose is slightly smokey with heavy roasty notes. Cocoa, oak, and vanilla are present.

Taste is very savory. Barely any hop presence, but a very intense and interesting flavor profile that includes smokiness, cocoa/roasted malt bitterness, and a slight green hop bitterness.

Moderate carbonation with a lingering cocoa and roasted malt bitterness. Overall a very intense and interesting beer with lots of depth. Would drink again.
