Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, char, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, char, earth, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the mix of aromas I am getting is slightly better to me.

Serving type: bottle.
